Reef Report for Wednesday, October 3, 2001
Wrasslin’ with Wrasse
What a glorious week it has been. Conditions will remain fine over the weekend. Only light winds 10 to 15 knots should ruffle the hair.
This week on the reef has seen many happy divers.
On board TUSA at Thetford reef colourful nudibranchs were out in force. Divers were also privy to the opening and closing of giant clams and Wally, the friendly giant Maori Wrasse, who stayed with the divers for the duration of their underwater visit. Visibility was 15 knots and should be improving.
Out on the southern reefs divers and snorkellers alike had 20 metres visibility and at Norman and Saxon visibility was 15-18 meters.
The biggest thanks goes to Crystal for holding down the fort for the last 4 weeks while I was touring around South Africa. I hope everybody enjoyed her updates. I managed to squeeze in some great dives in while I was away and will retell the adventures next week. Until then, get thee into the water as conditions are primo!
