Turtle at South Solitary Island

South Solitary Island treated us to some nice conditions and two great dives!!
Dive one had the experienced divers get in at Manta Arch and make their way to The Gantry while the students and a few others got in at The Gantry.
Dive two was split again with five divers doing Archies Cave around to Buchanan’s Wall and the rest doing a drift from Sharks Gutters down to The Gantry, both dives had loads to see including, Grey Nurse Sharks, Bullrays, Eagle Rays, Spanish Dancers, Mantis Shrimp, Painted Crayfish, lots of Nudibranchs, Turtles and much more.
