Not only did these two dolphins make us divers squeal with excitement when they buzzed around us, they also absolutely freaked out all fish life including the Grey Nurse Sharks! Every single fish took cover in cracks in the rock until the hunting was over and the dolphins disappeared. The vis was around the 15-20m mark, so this fast chain reaction was an amazing thing to watch. Interesting that the Grey Nurse at nearly the same size (one of the dolphins was huge!) did the same!
Hands up if you had a great day today! Amazing conditions at Julian Rocks: Clear blue water, hardly any current, flat as a lake and tons of Grey Nurse Sharks all along the Eastern side of the rock. We saw at least 20 sharks today and a total of six Loggerhead Turtles plus gazillions of fish everywhere! Happy days!
It was nose to tail shark action this weekend! Julian Rocks was packed with Grey Nurse Sharks, we saw at least 30 sharks, most of them behind the Cod Hole and on the deep Eastern side. At times it was shark traffic jam and we had to wait to squeeze through… Join us for a dive next Saturday while Grey Nurse Shark season is still at its peak!
Julian Rocks spoilt us today with perfect conditions: Blue water at 24 degrees with about 25m visibility and absolutely no current. We saw a Grey Nurse Shark, the little Whitetip Reefshark that’s been hanging around, Leopard Sharks, big Eagle Rays, a big school of Cownose Rays, some huge cod, plenty of turtles, big schools of Trevally, Jewfish and Snapper. Thank you Loren Mariani of C Level Media for the fantastic photos!
