Expedition update: Yongala Wreck

Upon descent we were greeted by a school of Barracudas, they pointed us toward the stern of the boat. As we started along the base of the hull, it appeared for a moment that there was not much to see but as we looked up, we could see a myriad of fish and ray silhouettes hovering above us. Giant Trevally, Marbled Stingrays, Eagle Rays, Cobia and Snappers were all schooled along the top edge of the wreck surfing the current. Along the wreck, sea snakes and Moray Eels writhed through the portholes of the ship. At the bow, two massive Queensland Groupers hung out in the shade of the hull. What an amazing way to end our second expedition. We are back on survey from October 20th. Can't wait!
