Cold water persists but Blacktips and Duskies stick it out!
The cold water persists and the duskies and blacktips are still as prolific as ever. There have been islolated sightings of tigers but they are off their best and it seems we will just have to wait for the warmer water. A surprise visit by a white shark was one of the highlights of last week and just yesterday the first of the scalloped hammereads made an appearance. The ragged tooth sharks are still here in numbers although certainly less than the heady days in July when they numbered in the hundreds on the reef. Visibility has been on the low side with 5m-8m being the norm.
