25th February 2020 – Lovely warm water and getting better!
25th February 2020
Today, 25th February 2020 we headed out to South Solitary for our Double Dive.
For dive one, we descended down to Shark Gutters. Among the schools of fish, there were heaps of octopus! At the start of this dive we saw some lionfish, and a Juvenile Yellow Boxfish. There were Black Cod, Blue Angelfish, and plenty of Wobbegongs. We also saw a Scorpion Leaf Fish in the cave.
We took a our morning tea surface interval, and headed down for our second dive which was Shark Gutters to South Boulder.
Here there were again plenty of Wobbegongs, a Mantis Shrimp, and some Black Cod. We saw Fusilliers, Skates and Spotted Rays on Boulder Wall. There was Flagtail Blanquillos and some Clouded Moray Eels, and an special appearence of a Greasy Rock Cod (pic by Nathan)
Visibility has improved in spots over the 15 mtrs we had on most of the dives. Looking promising with real blue water at depth. Fingers crossed for the weekend!
Visibility: 15 mtrs and getting better in spots
