Reef Report for Thursday, November 22, 2001

HOT, HOT, HOT. Summer is definitely on its way!

Divers onboard Taka braved the hot sun to enjoy "postcard perfect" conditions out on Osprey Reef. The biggest attraction of their Cod Hole/Coral Sea trip is without a doubt the spectacular shark feed. © Great Barrier Reef Enterprises As divers settle themselves in giant coral amphitheatre, an offering of tuna heads is placed in the limelight. Around 20-30 hungry sharks swim in, savagely ripping and tearing at the offered chow. Not for the faint hearted, it really is the highlight of any avid divers holiday!

Introductory divers onboard Tusa were blessed with calm seas and amazing visibility on Milln Reef. With most people on their very first dive, they were thrilled to spot turtles, lagoon rays, flowery cod, coral trout and a giant moray eel free swimming!

Visitors on Reef Magic had a fabulous time at Thetford reef during the week. Divers spotted schools of spangled emperor and giant turrum. Other passengers jumped onboard Reef Magicís semi-submersible coral viewing vessel, spotting giant clams, blue starfish, boulder coral, plate coral and staghorn coral. The glass bottom boat is guided by one of the marine biologists and takes passengers for an informative half-hour tour of the reef; a perfect option for smaller children or people who are not too keen on getting their toes wet!

What are we all to expect this weekend? Much of the same, gentle south-east to north-east winds blowing 10-15 knots. Happy diving!
