Friday 22nd October 2021 – Hammerheads again!
Today after the crazy storm Coffs had on Wednesday, we headed out to South Solitary on Mega Wild for a double dive!
On the first dive, we headed from Manta Arch to Cleaner Station. Just between Manta and Cleaner some of our divers saw a hundred plus Hammerhead Sharks, which circled past a few times. On this dive we also saw Lionfish, Moray Eels, Anenome Fish, and a Grey Nurse Shark! There were also black cod, and QLD Groper, and plenty of schooling fish.
On the second dive we headed from Cleaner Station to The Gantry for a nice long drift dive. There was plenty to see on this dive too, with bullseyes, pufferfish, some friendly Turtles, and some Grey Nurses. We also saw HUGE Bull Rays, a Blind Shark, aand a Pregnant Blue Groper we named Burt (was named prior to realizing it was pregnant). There was plenty of Wobbegongs on this dive, some nudibranches, and more Moray Eels.
