6th June 2021 – Minkie Whale Sighted On Our Way Out To South Soliary Island

2 weeks ago

Great conditions on the water made for a quick trip out to South Solitary Island this morning on “2Wild”. On the way out, Humpback Whales and also a lonely Minkie Whale were sighted.

All the certified and student divers dropped in on Shark Gutters for the first dive, exploring the top end of the Island. Heaps of marine life around including Black Cod, Wobbegong Sharks, Bull eyes, Stripeys, and the student divers were lucky enough to see there first Grey Nurse Shark.

After some warm soup in the surface interval it was decided a nice drift dive from Shark Gutters to South Boulder would be the go. “What a great dive”, a huge Green Turtle and three Eagle-Rays cruised by and along Boulder Wall, Lionfish, Black Cod, Bull-rays and Schooling fish every where. Todays pic is a couple of our local divers, Felix and Andrew.

Congratulations to Tanya on completing her PADI Open Water Diver Course.
