6th February- South Solitary Island

3 weeks ago

With a slight Southey wind behind Wildfin it made for a smooth trip out South Solitary Island. For dive one all divers descended on Shark Gutters mooring, more than a dozen Grey Nurse Sharks were spotted, along with Black Cod, Nudibranchs, Octopus, and a large juvenile Yellow Box Fish.

After the surface interval dive two was also on Shark Gutters mooring to hide from the expected Southerly swell, along Boulder Wall Bullrays, Tarwhine, Bullseyes, Painted crayfish, a Guineafowl Pufferfish and a some large Grey Nurse Sharks were seen.

Congratulations to Fynn on completing his PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course.
