7th May 2022 – Blue water Saturday
With two fully loaded boats our divers enjoyed a quick trip out to South Solitary Island this morning. MegaWild’s divers were greeted by a breaching juvenile humpback whale in the distance! We found some protection from the Southerly wind on the North end of the island at Cleaner Station and Shark Gutters for both dives. While conditions were a little chilly on the surface the water felt warm in comparison. Highlights from the dives today included very friendly leopard sharks that circled the groups, grey nurse sharks, massive turtles, crayfish, and massive schools of fish on the surface. For the first time in a while since the flooding the water’s clarity and colour were excellent and everyone enjoyed the excellent visibility.
Congratulations to Emma, Scott, Mimi, and Leilani on completing their PADI Open Water Course today!
