Reef Report for Thursday, September 20, 2001

'Rasslin on the Reef

Conditions have been a little lumpy and bouncy out on the high seas this week. Despite the breezy conditions out on the reef 20 metres visibility was experienced at dive site Three Sisters on Milln Reef, where Tusa was moored. © Dive The Reef Avid divers made reports of white tip reef sharks, giant trevally, barracuda and an unexpected visit from a free-swimming Moray Eel.

Visitors to Osprey Reef were blessed with 35 metres visibility and only 10-knot winds last week. Certified divers onboard Taka II sited a 3.5 metre Hammerhead Shark, 3.5 metre Silver Tip Shark along with a school of around 30 grey whalers!

Crew onboard Kalinda reported the wrestling match of the year, conducted at on Thetford reef; instructor Anthony vs. Wally the resident Maori Wrasse. Anthony took a group of newly certified divers for a cruise through the shallows, demonstrating what happens to an egg when broken underwater. It took no longer than 2 seconds for Wally to seek and destroy the tasty offering. Anthony tackled the badly behaved fish for a few seconds before Wally emerged victorious!

Things are looking to be a little on the wet and windy side this weekend. The winds are expected to blow SE 20 - 25 knots with a few isolated showers expected, but hopefully they will improve by Sunday. Have patience!
