Today our divers headed out to South Solitary Islands for a double dive!
For the first dive, our certified divers dropped into Manta Arch and drifted to Cleaner Station. Here they spotted 50+ Grey Nurse Sharks in blue, blue waters of over 30m visibility – wowee!
On our second dive we took Cleaner Station to South Boulder. On this dive we saw another half a dozen Grey Nurses, Some Black Cod, and schooling fish. We also saw our resident Loggerhead turtle Barney – today’s picture is by DM Cassie of Barney!
We unfortunately also saw a Black Cod which was floating upside down due to an bubble in it’s air-sac, caused by being caught by a fisherman. This is sad to see as the Black Cod may not survive this, and they are a protected animals in a Sanctuary Zone.
Despite this, It was a spectacular day out at South Solitary.
