23rd December 2021 – Shark Central at South Solitary!
With the recent wind and swell finally breaking, Mega Wild headed out to South Solitary for today’s diving.
First up our divers dropped in at Shark Gutters where they were caught in Grey Nurse peak hour traffic, with so many Grey Nurse Sharks around the mooring that our divers had to wait their turn to move! Pineapple Fish, Nudibranchs, a Queensland Grouper and unusually for this time of year a Giant Cuttlefish hiding in Cleaner Cave.
After the surface interval our divers rolled in at Manta Arch for a one way swim to South Boulder. More Grey Nurse were seen around the Back Gutter along with a plethitude of macro life: juvenile and sub-adult Yellow Boxfish, Nudibranchs, Peacock Sole and a very lost Spotted Snake Eel (today’s photo courtesy of Stuey)!
Congratulations to Tyeren on completing his PADI Advanced Open Water Course, and also Diego on completing his PADI Junior Open Water Diver Course.
Water Temperature: 20°
