Spring is upon us and at Wolf Rock that means our rays are returning from winter vacation.

This month’s diving has seen an increase in Eagle Ray sightings, with multiple encounters of large fevers of eagle rays and a few days of lucky divers witnessing the eagle ray mating dance.

This is a complicated ritual with several males vying for the attention of the female at once, following her in a chain of suitors.

In fact, one female can mate with up to four males. These rays are classed as near-threatened on the IUCN list and are normally quite shy of scuba divers.

Hitting the water for spring, Wolf Rock Dive taught their first group of Discover Scuba Divers (DSD). This one-day adventure is a great way to try scuba diving and get underwater in the ocean for the first time.

Owners James and Alex took four lucky ‘DSDs to Round Rock where they encountered turtles, gropers and several species of stingrays. Interested in Discovering Scuba Diving? Contact us on 0754868004.
