Today we headed out to South Solitary with a boat full of divers for a double dive, seeing 4-5 pods of breaching whales put on a show on the trip out.
Our first dive was at Manta Arch. It was Grey Nurse Shark city here, with Nurses cruising all about.  Between the sharks, we spotted schools of Bullseyes, among other schooling fish. Along the back gutter, one of our groups spotted upwards of 30 Nurses.
For our second dive, we dropped down into Cleaner Station, with one group dropping in at the Back Gutter. Both groups drifted to South Boulder. On this one, our divers saw Nudibranchs, Spanish Dancers, and again a whole heap of Grey Nurses. Our divers also saw plenty of Turtles, one of them getting nice and friendly and close, as pictured in the image today from Steve of Ryan and a turtle. Eagle Rays were also spotted, and a big Bull Ray following a Grey Nurse Shark at cadence.
Our divers could hear Whales Singing on their dives too – they sounded almost close enough to touch!
