Today, on Saturday 28th of May, MegaWild headed out to South Solitary Island for a double dive.

For the first dive we dropped into Buchannan’s Wall. Here we spotted big schools of Old Wives, green moon wrasse, and gunthers butterfly fish. There were blue tangs and anenome fish, and girdled palmers. There was a turtle relaxing underneath some rocks, and divers spotted a blue ring octopus towards the bottom of the wall.

On the second dive, some divers headed from Buchanan’s Wall to The Gantry, while others drifter from Shark Gutters to the Gantry. From Shark Gutters there were two eagle rays in the distance. At the start of Buchanan’s wall there was a smaller green turtle swimming away. Spotted at the Gantry was an egg cowry, and the usual inquisitive blue groper hanging around our divers. There were large schools of old wives here, wobbegong sharks, and we could hear the Whales singing at the end of the dive. Also spotted was a Green Moray and and a White Eyed Moray Eel, both haninging out in the same hole! We have a ripper picture of them from Mini for today’s dive report photo.

Congratulations to James for completing his Open Water Diver Course!
