Reef Report for Saturday, July 15, 2000
Gentle Giants Grace Reefs
Cairns continued to be blessed with glorious sunshine this week. On the reef, scuba divers and snorkelers alike have been privy to share the waters with the gentle Minke Whales. Spied on most reefs recently, the Minkes have been spending their days cruising the shallows.
Instructor Chrissie onboard Kalinda reported 30-35 metres visibility on the southern reefs. Instructor Dean, while diving in these pristine conditions, encountered a Stone Fish, often identified by its googly eyes. The Stone Fish changed color from cream to a variety of dark browns as it moved from the sandy bottom to the coral shelf.
Winds will continue to breeze at 15 knots from the southeast.
The weekly reef report is written by Sue-Anne Chapman of Pro Dive Cairns, who compiles them from the many conversations she has with divers, dive instructors, captains, and others in the Cairns dive community. The report is published weekly in the Cairn Post, the local daily paper and appears here thanks to the courtesy of Pro Dive Cairns.
