Reef Report for Wednesday, July 25, 2001

Another Great Week of Diving

It has been another glorious week of sunshine and slight seas. The coming weekend should see the weather continue to be calm with winds to stay blowing south to southeast at 15 knots. There may be a few light showers at night.

Again this week there have been lovely "winter" diving conditions, with 15-knot winds and excellent visibility, Water temperature is 26 degrees. © Dive The Reef

Divers on board Passions of Paradise this week have enjoyed great and varied marine life. There was a slight current at the end of the coral wall at the Fish Market, which is a great event for divers. The current attracts lots of fish, which hang around in the current waiting for particles of food to float to them! Divers spotted Red-lip Parrotfish, Bird Wrasse and Picasso fish. Adding to the colourful display were species of Damsels, including Blue Devil, Chocolate Dip and Jewel Damselfish.

DiveTheReef client Olwyn Sayers just wrote us about her reef trip this week, and had this to say about her groupís trip to the reef: "We had a fabulous time on Passions of Paradise and would like you to convey my thanks to the crew for our wonderful trip last Monday. They were all caring, responsible and FUN! Those kids work really hard ALL DAY."

On board Tusa Dive this week at Milnn reef there was 20 meters visibility. The highlight of the day occurred as Tusa was moored up, was a visit from a Minke whale. Snorkelers got the surprise of their life, the whale cruised within 3 metres off the stern. (And I have been stuck at my desk all week! Itís time to plan my early retirement!)

It is just magic time to be diving. Get out there.
