8th March 2019 – Blue Water and Certified Open Water Divers
The blue water is back!!! We had some amazing dives today at South Solitary Island and the northern end of the island was the pick to hide from the southerly wind.
Dive one was at South Boulder as this was the calmest for everyone and plenty to see with schools of Travelly, Black Cod, Sweep, Tarwhine and a solo Leopard Shark near North Boulder.
Dive two was at Cleaner Station and a few of the divers made their way around to Manta Arch in search of Grey Nurse Sharks, we were welcomed by 8-10 Grey nurse there and a beautiful 25m visibility. We also had a couple of Lionfish in Cleaner cave and some huge Eagle Rays gliding in the current.
Congratulations to Dylan, Chelsea and Daniel who all completed their PADI Open Water Course today.

“Daniel has been the most inspirational student I have ever had and it was my absolute pleasure to help him achieve his PADI Open Water Certification” Lindsay said.
