Divers had a great time over the Easter weekend with favourable weather. Surface conditions were calm on the south side with NW winds, the sun was shining and despite stormy conditions earlier in the week the viz had recovered to 8 - 10 mtr. Those in wetsuits wished they'd been in drysuits though as the water temperature was only 8 degrees C.
Whilst dropping divers on the Illyrian Jerry spotted a small (3 mtr) basking shark very close to the shore. By the time divers surfaced it was still feeding and cruising around gently. We kept an eye out too for the 5 orcas that were seen between The Stags and Cape Clear the previous weekend but there were no further sightings of them.
