29th July 2017 – Whales Getting Frisky At South Solitary Island!
After some time out of the water, we were all eager to explore the depths of South Solitary Island. Divers experienced a rare encounter of four Humpback whales swimming back and fourth between our boat “2 Wild” and the Island on our surface interval. We believe the whales were in pursuit of one female, and she was playing hard to get! We also enjoyed plenty of Grey Nurse Sharks around Shark Gutters and Cleaner Station, and our Cuttlefish are still lurking about South Boulder Wall. Turtles, Rays, Wobbys, Nudis, Lionfish, Groupers, Black Cod, and many schooling fish were also seen while diving.
Congratulations Stephen in completing his PADI Advanced Open Water Course, well done!
