Hugo’s trench, Julian Rocks

Probably our last dive at Julian Rocks for some time, and it was a good one,  (they’re all good dives at Julian Rocks).  On this dive we had about 15 metres visibility with a moderate current. Our previous dives at Julian Rocks had been at the Cod Hole, so we was keen to take a tour of Hugo’s trench and the Needles.

Snapper: This snapper was about 60cm long.

Blue spotted ray:  It breading season and you can get quit close.

Blue spotted ray: It’s breeding season and they’re everywhere.

Leopard shark:  These sharks are very docile, if you move slowly, you can actually lay on the sand next to them.
