26th May 2022 – Wobbegong Thursday
Today, 26th of May 2022, we took 2Wild out to South Solitary Island for a double dive. There was a bit of current earlier in the day, so we headed to Cleaner Station mooring for our divers to do their first dive.
Our divers dropped in to see heaps of fish at the surface! At depth the divers spotted Eagle Rays, black cod, nudibranches, schooling silver trevalley, and dewfish. There were also plenty of bullseyes, pomfreds, blue fusiliers, and old wives. There were a few moray eels, and a few lionfish. We also spotted a huge turtle relaxing in the sand, and plenty of wobbegongs.
On the second dive the current appeared to have dropped so we headed to Shark Gutters for a drift to South Boulder. We saw an eagle ray on this dive too, along with the schooling fish. There was one large Grey Nurse Shark mulling near Shark Gutters mooring, some anenome fish and another relaxed turtle on boulder wall. There were plenty more nudibranches, an abbots moray. There was more wobbegongs, with one getting it’s tail nipped at by a brave girdled palmer!
We also spotted a few whales on the trip back home, they’re on their way!
Congratulations to Zephyr and Solomon for completing their PADI Open Water Diver Course!
