21st November 2020 – HAMMER TIME!
After conditions improved dramatically in comparision to yesterday, we managed to take out out 2 Wild out to South Solitary for a double dive.
Shark Gutters was the decision for the first dive, as conditions out at South Solitary were much better than expected allowing for an enjoyable dive for all. Divers saw Grey Nurse Sharks, Green Sea and Hawksbill Turtles, Nudibranchs, loads of colourful fish life, and most noteably, all divers managed to see two large Hammerhead Sharks just as they were leaving one of the gutters. Divers then saw them again while they were completing their safety stops.
For the second dive, divers jumped in at Manta Arch and checked out the back gutter, then made their way through the Gap and ended up at the Gantry. Approximately 15-20 Grey Nurse Sharks greeted the divers at the back gutter, along with more friendly Green Sea and Hawksbill turtles. In the gap, we had large Wobbegong Sharks, loads of Nudibracnhs, Bull Rays, Moray Eels, and again loads of fish life.
All and all, all divers had a great double dive, and thoroughly enjoyed what South Solitary has to offer.
Water Temperature: 21 degrees
