Kirsty and I saw even more Snapper on this dive than when we were here in 14 January! In some places they seemed to be circling around one particular fish that was lying on the sandy bottom. Perhaps this was a female who was getting ready to release eggs?

There were quite a few Moonlighters, Zebrafish, and Yellow-striped Leatherjackets, along with a pair of Yellow-finned Leatherjackets where the male was being particularly protective of the female.

We found one Port Jackson Shark on this dive, under an overhanging gutter, but couldn't find any more. There were a few Stingarees around as well. The beginning and end of this dive saw us swimming through schools of Garfish.
