While the bad weather stops us from diving, time to go through photos from the last couple of weeks. Hopefully these guys will be waiting for us out there again when the ocean has settled a bit…

When the local marine life has not read the memo on social distancing and comes rubbing up against you…
Great diving straight after Christmas on Sunday and Monday. Thanks for sharing this great shot @jblank_photography

We got a sneaky Friday morning dive in before the weather turned bad yesterday afternoon and when we arrived at Julian Rocks and saw the vis and felt the temperature, we never expected it to turn into such a great day of diving. We even saw a Manta in the Needles!!! A big one! Highlight was definitely the schooling Bullrays and Eagle Rays in the Trench though. What an experience! (excuse the raw GoPro footage, it struggled a bit…) We also saw a couple of Grey Nurse Sharks and plenty of fish all along to the Cod Hole (even though it was pretty murky that way and we could just make out a lot of big shadows…). There were plenty of turtles in all sizes, the Clown Frogfish was still in its spot and we saw big Kingfish, large Snapper and Jewfish, big schools of fish in the shallows (where it was a little warmer), a cuttlefish and plenty more. Hopefully the strong Easterlies over the next few days will bring back the warm blue water!

Here’s the Clown Frogfish we’ve been seeing at Julian Rocks for the last three weeks. He’s a real whopper!

23 November 2020:
Beautiful spring mornings at the Rock… For the next few weeks, we’ll be diving Saturday and Sundays only. From Saturday 19 December until the end of February, we’ll be diving 7 days a week! There’ll be limited spots available this year due to social distancing requirements, so don’t leave it too long to book your holiday dives!

It’s time to wave good-bye: Our whale watching season has finished early this year. “Bon voyage” to our magnificent whales! May your journey be safe and the Southern Ocean be full of krill for you! A big thank you to all our customers and friends who have joined us this year. We look forward to seeing you all again in 2021!

Just two friendly whales right beside the boat giving us their best impression of Julian Rocks… It’s been a great week! This shot was taken by skipper Roundy on Thursday when we took out @the_fat_whales_project
