25th January 2021 – Turtles, Eagle Rays, and Leopard Sharks Galore
2 Wild and Wildfin travelled out to South Solitary Island today for some diving action!
We had some pretty serious current out at South Solitary today which helped bring in some warm blue waters. For the first dive the choice was Buchanans Wall. During this dive, divers saw Wobbegongs, Nudibranchs, 2 large Bull rays, Green Sea Turtles, Dwarf Lionfish, and Moray Eels.
For the second dive, we had the more experienced divers do a drift from the top end down to the Gantry, whereas the other less experienced divers jumped in at The Gantry. During these dives, divers saw tonnes of Spotted Eagle Rays around North Boulder, a Leopard Shark, along with 8 Green Sea Turtles chilling at the entry to the Gap for everyone to find, and heaps of Wobbegong Sharks.
Visibility: Buchanans Wall – 10m
Shark Gutters/Boulder Wall – 20m+
Water Temperature: 23-26°C
