Sunday 22nd March – 30 m Visibility sticking around at South Solitary Island
[vc_column width=”1/2″]With the hope that the 25-30m visibility was still around we steamed out to South Solitary Island for a double dive!! The surface conditions were not flash at all but under the water was beautiful!!
Dive one the certified divers done a one way swim from Manta Arch to Shark Gutters, around 6 Grey Nurse Sharks were seen at the arch with a couple of eagle rays hanging around mid water.
Dive two we did not really have anywhere else to go due to the ugly surface conditions, we done a return swim from Shark Gutters to South Boulder and back again. a huge abundance of schooling fish on the wall with about 3 turtles spotted, lionfish, Frog-fish, Nudibranchs, Eagle Rays, a Spanish Dancer and lots lots more.
Photo taken today by Sarah of a Hawks bill Turtle and a little black Lion-fish just to the right of the turtle.
