We are getting seriously spoilt at the moment… Both with amazing conditions and great underwater photographers on our boat lately! Here is one of Andy Green’s photos from yesterday’s dive. Thanks for sharing, Andy – and great to see you again!
The diving Gods have not been kind to us keeping us out of the water for nearly 1 month with cyclones, swells and northerlies … but they sure made up for it today with the best conditions we have seen this year … and with an abundance of life around Julian Rocks – Image by John Natoli
Amazing conditions at the rock this weekend! Who would have thought after all the terrible weather we’ve had over the last four weeks including cyclone Oma ravaging our coastline… Repost by @uwpwithsascha
Another day in perfect conditions at Julian Rocks today! The water is warm and clear and we saw the two Dusky Whaler Sharks again, 6-8 Leopard Sharks in the Needles, some Eagle Rays, lots of Bull Rays, big Jewfish and Kingfish, massive QLD Gropers, lots of Bream and Trevally, Barracuda, a big Loggerhead Turtle, a few smaller turtles and plenty more.
Amazing diving at the rock yesterday! The water is clear and blue with 15-20m vis and it has warmed up to a lovely 22 degrees. We saw about 25-30 Grey Nurse Sharks, some big Bullrays, massive Jewfish, lots of big Blubberlip Bream and Snapper, some huge Kingfish, big Barracuda, Loggerhead Turtles und plenty more! And yes, our friend the little Whitetip Reefshark is back! Thanks for spotting him and getting a photo of him, Linda!
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!
