6th October – 2019 Great Vis At South Solitary Island

2 weeks ago

After a smooth trip out to South Solitary Island, the Advanced divers dropped in at Manta Arch and made their way to Cleaner Station, and the other two groups dropped in at Cleaner.

All the divers saw Grey Nurse Sharks around the Arch, and also hanging around Cleaner Station. Eagle Rays were sighted, schools of Tarwhine, Silver Trevally, Batfish, Black Cod, and one group of divers got up close with Barney the Loggerhead Turtle.

After morning tea all the divers dropped in again at Cleaner and drifted round to South Boulder. A couple of juvenile Grey Nurse Sharks were protecting the entrance to the Cleaner Station Cave, a few Wobbegong Sharks were moving around instead of sitting on the bottom.
A number of Nudibranchs, a few Slipper Lobsters and big schools of Bullseyes and Sweep, were everywhere down the Wall.
Vis 20 Metres.
Water Temp 19 degrees.
