29th December 2020 – Barney is BACK!
Today we took both 2 Wild and Wilfdin to South Solitary for a double dive. The water visibility has improved alot of the last few days which made everyone eager to jump in.
We had student divers on 2 Wild, and we dived the Gantry for the first dive. We saw about 10 Green Sea and Hawksbill Turtles between the moorning and the gap, countless Wobbegong Sharks, Moray Eels, along with amazing colourful fish life. Wildfin dived Cleaner Station for their first dive. Highlights include Grey Nurse Sharks, Wobbegong Sharks, a large Spanish Dancer in Cleaner Cave and BARNEY the Loggerhead Turtle decided to show up for the first time in over a year!!
For the second dive, divers on 2 Wild did a drift from Shark Gutters to South Boulder, whilst Wildfin checked out the Back Gutter where 34 Grey Nurse were playing about in the gutter, and then swam through the Gap to the Gantry. On this dive there was tonnes of fishlife, and a few more curious turtles.
Water temperature: 22°
