2nd January 2016 – Fish Soup at Cleaner Station
What an amazing way to start the year with a double dive at South Solitary Island!!
Once at the island there was a lot more swell then predicted, so everyone was stuck out a little deeper and close to the bottom, both dives today were at the northern end as the visibility was nice and blue.
Manta Arch had about 9-14 Grey Nurse Sharks but Cleaner Station was the stand out today with a huge range of fish species, Black Cod, Kingfish, Tarwhine, Snapper, Blue Groupers and Flutemouth Fish was just a fraction of what was there.
Nathan also spotted this rare gem, a Pineapple Fish in Cleaner Cave.
Visibility – 15-18m
