Many divers venture to Flinders to experience the turtle cleaning station on the Western side of the Island in the Coral Gardens. The Gardens are popular with divers as its average depth is 8 meters. This allows the light to reach the reef and over time has produced some of the best fauna you can see in Australia. Indeed, I have personally seen manta rays, whales, leopard sharks, batfish, wobbegongs and too many tropical fish to name them all. However, we visit Flinders Reef to say hello to the turtles.
The most common turtles you will find at Flinders are Green and Loggerheads. They are almost guaranteed to be there. Indeed, I have visited Flinders over 200 times and I have not seen turtles only once. However, I did see a humpback whale swimming by with her calf. Evidently, this definitely made up for the turtle!
