Hammer Head Sharks at South Solitary Island by Jetty Dive
Santa switched on all the special effects today for an amazing Christmas Eve dive at South Solitary Island!!

Hammer Head Sharks were seen again today at Manta Arch and South Boulder on the second dive. There were also around 10 Grey Nurse Sharks up the top end!!

Nudibranchs, Bullrays, Moorish Idols, Sweep, Eagle Rays, some very healthy Snapper in The Gap and loads of Turtles were just some of the life seen today.

This Green Sea Turtle that Lindsay (in his santa suit) found had a bag really tight around his/her neck!! Lindsay bought it up to the boat where Andrew joined in on the rescue, very lucky as it was close to cutting into its neck..Job well done such a good feeling.

Amazing day and Merry Christmas too everyone!!!!
