With Mega Wild full of customers, we headed out to South Solitary for a double dive, with a couple of snorkelers on board to enjoy the beautiful conditions.
On the first dive we headed down into Manta Arch, planning to make their way through to cleaner station. On this dive we started off with some Grey Nurse Sharks, seeing a few at the entrance of Manta Arch, along with a little moray eel. The arch was abundant with schooling fish, mainly bullseyes, and a large wobbegong. A large bull ray swung past as we headed towards the gutter. In the gutter on the way to Cleaner Station a few Grey Nurse Sharks greeted us, along with varieties of fish, nudibranches, and a blue gropers. At cleaner station we spotted some black cod, a few wobbeygongs, some yellow moon wrasse, among plenty of schooling fish.
Some of our divers were lucky to spot some hammerheads on this dive!
For the second dive, we dropped into Cleaner Station, and made our way through Shark Gutters.
On this dive we saw some more Grey Nurse Sharks, QLD Gropers, Black Cod, and heaps of Nudibranches. There were also hammerheads spotted on the second dive, while some divers spotted a loggerhead turtle and a green sea turtle. We saw more moray eels, a spanish dancer, and a flutemouth. Tarafish (a juvenile emporer angelfish that Tara spotted near cleaner cave) is still hanging around. Our snorkelers were lucky to see some turtles on their snorkel, too!
Congratulations to Emily and Tash for completing their Advanced Open Water Diver Course!
