After the Bombo we headed over to Martins Islet to see what the seals were up to.  As we approached we could see a large number on the shore, I counted over 30 and as we got closer we could quite a few more in the water.  When we pulled up the the seals started to come over - we rushed to change our cylinders so we could get in the water.  It was quite sunny and being shallow viz was great.  We hit the bottom and there were the seals, at least a dozen that I counted.  They were all over the place, so quick and smooth.  I quickly found 2 favourites,  a juvenile that rested it's head on a rock in front of me and an older seal with only one eye. I watched them "fighting" and baring teeth, rubbing themselves along the sandy bottom and just frolicking around.

This is a dive that any one confident in the water could do, and an enjoyable encounter with the seals is guaranteed.  We don't see other divers here, given it's only 10 minutes from a very good boat ramp I'm baffled that it is not swamped with divers.

I have some great pics and video as well.
