31st January 2021 – Sea Slug Sunday
We had amazing conditions today to finish off a full weekend of diving and the final day of the Coffs Coast Sea Slug Census.
Dive one had both Wildfin and 2Wild explore the western side of the island around The Gantry and Buchanan’s Wall. Lots to see including Eagle Rays, Blue Spotted Rays, Snapper, Turtles, Octopus, a Dwarf Lionfish and a huge Giant Stingray near the mooring.
Dive two was based up the northern end of the island and we had lots to see!! Nudibranchs everwhere, Black Cod, Wobbegongs, huge schools Travelly and Sweep, thousands of fish hanging close to the surface and a cheeky little Thorny-Back Cowfish near South Boulder mooring.

Total count of different Sea Slugs spotted over the 3 days was roughly 28!!!
Congratulations to Simon, Caillean, Arlia, Liz and Zoyawho all finished their PADI Open Water Certs today.
