Reef Report for Wednesday, May 9, 2001

Lots to See In the Big Blue Sea

If you havenít been diving, SHAME ON YOU! It has been absolutely spectacular out on the big blue this week.

Fabulous conditions were experienced at the Fish Market where Passions of Paradise was moored. © Great Barrier Reef Enterprises Certified divers saw a large Maori Wrasse followed by a pair of mischievous trumpet fish.

Pro Dive also had excellent conditions this week, with a group of newly certified divers experiencing their first night dive! As they all delved into the dark blue sea at Petaj Bommie, they first stumbled upon a Decorator Crab covered in anemones, sponges and bits of coral. He was said to look like a Mardi Gras parade float!

Halfway through their dive, one of the students proudly pointed out a Juvenile Batfish, as well as a Hermit Drab making himself comfortable inside a giant turbin shell. However, the highlight of the dive was when instructor Emma showed her divers a huge two-metre Shovel Nosed Ray cruising around in 10 metres of water. A lot of the divers on board claimed this was one of their most exciting dives ever.

If you havenít been diving but intend to go this weekend, youíre in for a treat. The sun should be shining with south to southeasterly winds blowing a gentle 10 knots.

Safe diving!!
