9th March 2021 – Loads of variety at South Solitary
Both boats travelled out to South Solitary Island today for some more diving action!
For the first dive we had one boat roll in at Buchanans Wall, and another boat jump in at Manta Arch and swim through the Gap and finished up at The Gantry. During these dives we saw Eagle Rays and Grey Nurse Sharks at Manta Arch, a Green Sea Turtle which was unfortuntely missing a fin 🙁 along with Moray Eels, Blue Grouper, Nudibranchs, and Wobbegongs at Buchannans Wall.
The second dive we had one group stay up at the top end exploring Cleaner Station and Shark Gutters, whereas the other boat dived from The Gantry to Buchanans Wall. Highlights from these dives include a Leopard Shark, Green Sea Turtles, an Octopus, Numb Rays, more Moray Eels, and more friendly Blue Groupers.
