Manta Arch featured in Aussie Dive Destinations
Manta Arch at South Solitary Island rated as a Special Dive in Australia by dive article
“So special is the Solitary Islands Marine Park, established 25 years ago to protect the unique marine life the environment holds, that we nominated it as one of our favourite places to dive for a recent article by Bupa Travel Insurance, ‘Scuba Diving Adventures Around Australia’. Diving off this part of northern NSW coastline offers an amazing mixture of tropical and sub-tropical marine life. The East Australian Current pushes warm tropical water down the east coast resulting in a plethora of fish and coral. Solitary Island is the turning point, where hard and soft coral flourishes over the rocky sub-structure.
It is unique to this area to have Clownfish like “Nemo” and Blue Tangs like “Dory” swimming freely underneath the Grey Nurse Sharks and schooling fish from the south.”
