23rd October 2020 -Manta Arch and a Drift
We headed out today and were greeted with nice blue water. With signs of a big current, we dived at Manta and were met by a few Grey Nurse out and about at the arch. The current was too strong to venture to the back gutter, but we still saw 8-10 sharks cruising close by. Lockie and the PADI Deep Specialty divers were lucky to have glimpses of a Hammerhead shark in the distance.
On our second dive the certified divers dropped in at Shark Gutter to drift around to the Gantry. Here there were bull rays, lots of turtles including one sleeping under a rock, and some Black Cod at a Cleaner Station area.
The Deep Specialty Divers headed out deep from the Gantry to see a squadron of Cow Nose rays at 30 mtrs and finished with turtles and Clownfish in the shallows
Visibility: 20 mtrs
