A large school of Pearl Perch was seen at Julian Rock, a rare sight. See photo on the left.
One group of divers found a large Loggerhead Turtle whose carapace was split at the back.Fortunately no damage to the rest of its body was evident. And it could have been a while back this happened. The turtle seemed content enough.
A Manta Ray, Eagle Rays, a Hawksbill Turtle, juvenile Golden Trevally and generally a lot of ‘busy’ fish life.
- Mostly sunny and only the occasional cloud would cast its shadow on beach bums and holidaymakers. Cool winds from the South most of the time. Cool nights and mornings.
- Big improvement from last week. Although on Tuesday there was still some swell and underwater it was a bit surgy. That improved rapidly.
- Water temperature
- 24 – 25°C
- Sunday the visibility was atrocious (1 meter), but on Tuesday it was 12 meters and by Friday the visibility was 15 meters plus.
