500m diameter baitball near Montague

Over the Easter holidays, I dived Narooma with my dad. We saw some Moorish Idols, and I took this pic – they are not easy to get!

Also, whilst boating between Montague Island and the Continental shelf, we came across a big bait school, with common dolphins, risso dolphins and pilot whales, all feeding. We estimated the size of the baitball to be over 500m across. Unfortunately, the risso dolphins were too quick for a photo!

We’ve been seeing more turtles at the island too.
