19 species sighted at Coles Hole, Mooloolaba, Sunshine Coast, Qld, 09-09-2018.

Gary with Sunreef Nudibranch Day on this excursion consisting of 1 x 53 minute and 1 x 49 minute dives in water depths up to 20.0 m, up to 20 m viz, 20 C water temp.

Today was Nudibranch Day with Sunreef Scuba Diving. I was a little concerned about the wind and swell but when we got to the bottom it was a slice of heaven! Great viz and very little surge. Finding Miromelo undatus was a real treat after not seeing it for quite a while.
