25th May 2022 – Whales, Sharks, and Turtles… oh my!
2 Wild was the boat of choice this morning for our divers and we cruised out to South Solitary Island for some diving. We spent both dives at Cleaner Station as this spot had the best surface conditions and divers were not disappointed. Visibility has improved since we were last out and the water was much bluer than it had been. Highlights from the dives included very curious eagle rays, grey nurse sharks, lionfish, trumpetfish, and black cod. One dive group diving deeper and out wider from the island were excited to glimpse a bull shark cruising around. Instructor Lindsay was also able to remove a large fishing lure from a green turtle’s flipper and shell today. During the surface interval a humpback whale took some breaths just behind the boat and another was spotted on the trip home.
Congratulations to Jane and Dave for completing their PADI Open Water course today!
