When we arrived to South Solitary Island we were welcomed to improved visibility.
The certified divers got in around the back gutter while the students stuck to the shallows of The Gantry. There was a few Grey Nurse Sharks in the Back Gutter but none at Manta Arch. Turtles, Snapper and Sweep were spotted through the gap and around the Gantry.
Dive Two was a drift from the top end for the certified divers while the Advanced Open Water students done their Navigation at The Gantry. It was like fish soup on boulder wall today with Black Cod, Kingfish, Butterfly Fish, Bullrays, Slipper Lobsters and numerous Turtles near the gap.
Congratulations to the following new certifications!!

  • PADI Open Water Diver – Steven Kay and Dylan Currie

  • PADI Enriched Air Diver – Ben Williamson, James Hunt and Euan Belson
