After pushing through the smoke we found South Solitary Island in clear air and what looked like Clean water. We were a little disappointed to find it wasn’t really clear as we entered the water at South Boulder Wall mooring. With a slight push against us we made our way along the Wall to Shark Gutters to find more fish in the shallows than deeper along the wall. Turtles and Wobbegongs along with some Nudibranchs including the huge Spanish Dancer in the picture.
Dive two started at Shark Gutters and a couple of Grey Nurse were finally spotted at Cleaner Station area. The plan was to move around to the Gantry and along the way at the gap was where we found 4 Turtles  and another at 2 at the Gantry. The Colour of the Blue Tangs (Dory’s) stood out well against the coral heads.
Congratulations to Joe and Beth for completing their PADI Open Water Diver with us at the Solitary Islands.
