6th January 2021 – Wicked Wednesday
Wildfin and 2 Wild cruised out to South Solitary Island once again for a double dive.
2 Wild descended down at Manta Arch for their first dive. Approximately 25+ Grey Nurse Sharks were spotted in the back gutter, along with Wobbegongs near the arch, Nudibranchs, schools of Travelly, and a Bullray. Divers on Wildfin dived Shark Gutters first up, with about 10 Grey Nurse Sharks in and around the 2nd and 3rd gutters, a large Hawksbill Turtle, Black Cod, schools of Kingfish, and Nudibranchs.
For the second dive we had 2 Wild’s divers drift from Cleaner Station down to South Boulder, and divers from Wildfin explore the top end once again. Highlights from the dives include; 10-15 Grey Nurse Sharks between Cleaner Station and Shark Gutters, Lionfish, Bullrays, Green Sea Turtles, Hawksbill Turtles, Nudibranchs, large Black Cod, Wobbegongs Sharks, Octopus and a Juvenile Ribbon Eel which is quite rare to be found in this area.
Congrats to Harry, Angus, Kate, Ethan, and Huntly who completed their PADI Open Water Course today!! Well done to all of you!
