Reef Report for Wednesday, September 5, 2001

Another "Wow" Week

Despite threats of rain this week, the wonderful sunshine has prevailed, bringing all sorts of marine life out of the woodwork. Dive operators have been raving about conditions out on the deep blue this week.

Passengers on board Reef Magic Cruises were spoiled, they had sightings of humpback whales on more than one occasion this week. © Dive The Reef The gentle giants snuck right up beside the vessel and then proceeded to dazzle onlookers, breaching no more than 100 metres away whilst the boat was still moored!

At the Fish Market where Passions of Paradise were moored, a group of introductory divers were lucky enough to share the seas with an unexpected visitor. Whilst diving off Upolu cay, a 2-metre dolphin playfully swam right up beside the group of stunned first time divers. Though it is common to see dolphins racing boats to and from the reef, it is indeed rare to actually dive with these amazing animals.

On Milln Reef, Tusa have also reported delicious diving conditions with divers spotting hawksbill turtles, white tip reef sharks and cuttlefish. Cuttlefish season is approaching fast and we should hear of more sightings as they frequent the shallows to lay their eggs.

The weather people are predicting the southeasterly winds to drop from 15-20 knots to a gentle 10-15 knots, with the weather remaining mostly fine throughout the weekend. Happy diving!
