4th October 2019 – Blue Water at South Solitary Island

2 weeks ago

This mornings trip to South Solitary Island was a little bumpy and a bit slow going but once we arrived we were welcomed with the beautiful, blue 25m visibility!!
Dive one was at the southern end of the island to get away from the NE wind, our divers had a good look around Buchanan’s Wall, Cable Trail and Archies Cave. There was plenty to see with Black Cod, Stingrays and plenty of Nudibranchs.
Dive two we dealt with the lumpy NE chop and got in up the northern end where the conditions under water were amazing!!! We had Octopus, Green Sea Turtles, Angle Fish, Orangutan Crabs in Shark Gutters, Black Cod, Nudibranchs and 8-12 Grey Nurse Sharks in the Cleaner Station cave/gutter.

Visibility 15-25m
Temp 18-19C
