Reef Report for Wednesday, February 6, 2002

No Rain, Perfect Diving on the Reef.

Well, I fear the wet season may never come, which means that this perfect weather is here to stay for good. Hooray! The conditions will stay similar over the weekend north to north east winds 10 to 15 knots with maybe a late shower on Sunday.

Guests on board Reef Magic have been having a great time at Hastings Reef, as visibility was 15 metres and the plate corals and giant clams plentiful. © Great Barrier Reef Enterprises Introductory divers enjoyed the clown fish and their anemone. Whilst on Thetford Reef there was a lot of shark activity with multiple sightings of 3 white tip reef sharks moving as a pack.

Onboard TAKA glassy conditions were had at most dive sites. The manta rays were out and about with divers spotting several of them, plus a large Bull Ray at Pixie Reef. At the Cod Hole 8 potato cod and 3 white tip reef sharks showed up to collect their lunch. A Napoleon Wrasse also came by to sample the smorgasbord.

At the Fish Market this week Passions of Paradise guests experienced amazing weather conditions and 20-metre visibility, making for sensational diving. Certified divers were enchanted with a Spanish Dancer in 10 m of water and the introductory divers were lucky enough to spot a Green Turtle as well as a school of hump-headed parrotfish. The snorkellers on Passions didnít miss out either; they were followed by a friendly 2m Maori Wrasse in the coral gardens.

Finally, on TUSA Dive at Three Sisters Mooring busy Bat Fish were seen swimming in the gorgonian fans in the swim through under the pinnacle. Kodak and Fuji love these moments, as untold numbers of photos were snapped of the spectacular sight!
