7th June 2021 – Giant Cuttlefish Spotted!

2 weeks ago

Today 2 Wild headed out to South Solitary for a double dive!

For the first dive we had one group head down into Shark Gutters, with another group heading from Cleaner Station to South Boulder. At Shark Gutters we had students doing their skills for their final two dives in the Open Water Course, and a student doing her first dive on the Advanced Open Water Course. They spotted a turtle, one Grey Nurse Shark, and plenty of black cod, along with a swimming wobbegong and plenty of schooling fish. Our group that dived Cleaner Station to South Boulder saw a Mantis Shrimp, Eagle Rays and Grey Nurses, along with a Giant Cuttlefish – qutie early in the year for us!

For the second dive all divers headed to Manta Arch. Here 15+ Grey Nurses were spotted, along with a turtle and our resident turtle Barney (Pictured with some of our students in today’s image!). We saw some Moray Eels, plenty of schooling fish, Blue Groupers and Black Cod, Nudibranches, and some Old Wives.

We saw some Whales on the trip home too!

Many congratulations to our students Kiara, Barbara, Myles, Josh, and Peter for completing their PADI Open Water Diver Course – Great work!
