28th Feburary 2021 – “Fantastic surface and underwater conditions at South Solitary”
Today we were greeted by almost perfect surface and underwater conditions, that ensured that all divers had the best Sunday possible.
Both boats flew out to South Solitary in no time, where we had Wildfin roll in at Buchanans Wall with Open Water Students, whereas 2 Wild jumped in at Manta Arch with the more experienced certified divers. Highlights from these dives include Green Sea and Loggerhead Turtles, a Queensland Groper, Juvenile Sweetlip, 17 Grey Nurse Sharks at the Arch which were counted as apart of a Shark Awareness Dive with Lindsay and his students, along with Wobbegongs, Lionfish, and Nudibranchs.
For the second dive, majority of divers did a drift from Shark Gutters down to the Gantry, and some just stayed and checked out the Gantry. Eagle rays, a Leopard Shark, Green Sea Turtles, Loggerhead Turtles, Wobbegongs, Black Cod were amongst the highlights, additiuonally we had constant schools of Fusilers, Tarwhine, Travelly, and Sweetlip.
Congratulations to Julia and Susan who completed their PADI Open Water Course today with Stuart! We also had Skye and Brett complete the Shark Awareness Speciality with Lindsay. Well done to all of you!!
