9th April 2018 – Humpback Whale Spotted!!
On our way out to South Solitary Island this morning we came across one lonely Humpback who was keen to get the party started. Historically we don’t normally see Humpback Whales migrating north until late may/early June so this girl is definitely early!
Sheltered from the northerly breeze, Buchanan’s Wall was the ideal location for today’s first dive. Loads of Wobbegongs, Black Cod, Octopus, Lionfish and a few Green Turtles were just some of the highlights.
Round two included a drift dive from the Cleaner Station to the Gantry. Sooooooooo many fish on the Boulder Wall!!! Kingfish, Black Cod, Tarwhine, Sweep and Trevally to name a few!
Vis varied from 5-10m, temp 20-22c.
