9th December 2020 – Conditions improved at South Solitary!
After a few days without blowing bubbles due to conditions, today was the day to get back out to South Solitary Island for a double dive.
For the first dive, all divers jumped in at Shark Gutters, and explored the top end of the island. Divers were lucky enough to spot approximately 10 Grey Nurse Sharks in and around Shark Gutters Mooring and in and around the swim through. Along with the Grey Nurse Sharks, divers saw an abundance of different colourful Nudibranchs, Green Sea Turtles, Loggerhead Turtles, Marbled Rays, Slipper Lobsters, tonnes of schooling fish throughout the dive and even a large Queensland Grouper.
For the second dive, all divers did a drift dive from Shark Gutters to South Boulder Mooring. Along the gentle drift, divers saw countless small, medium, and large Wobbegong Sharks, Green Sea and Hawksbill Turtles, more Grey Nurse Sharks, Black Cod and Coral Cod, another Marbled Ray, along with loads of fish life along the boulder wall for everyone to see.
Water Temperature: 20° C
