Another fantastic dive at Ricketts Point, even though the visibility was pretty poor. The viz was partially due to muck in the water and also because of the large amount of fry we could see. Lots of Zebras about, feeding on weeds, and some Yellow and Horseshoe Leatherjackets. There were a few very large Dusky Morwong swimming around. Kirsty found a good sized Sweet Ceratasoma Nudibranch.

We also saw a few Stingarees and perhaps five Banjo sharks, but the highlight of the day was finding ten Port Jackson sharks scattered along under a ledge. The ledge was situated along a line from the white house with a tall tree behind it, and the green pile, with the yellow pile slightly to the right of a right angle to this line. One of the sharks was swimming around, but the rest were just hanging out under the ledge.
