A few more diving photo's

Here we are then....just getting ready to dive in. Were close to the land on this dive but we were on a 40 metre drop off....very dramatic underwater scenery with massive granite boulders and swim throughs.

Tucked into rock crevices were some pretty big moray eels.

Batfish were all over the place....

I was looking up towards the surface watching the shoals of big barracuda and trevally. Something triggered a feeding frenzy for the trevallies....they came from 30 metres above me to within inches on me in less than a second. That was mega high speed swimming...amazing how fast they came down. That was a real eye-opener for me...just how fast they attacked right from the surface to the bottom.

There's all sorts of wierd little critters lurking about. I dived on this site two weeks ago and this male ribbon eel was in exactly the same place! And right next to it were two frogfish which had also remained on exactly the same bit of coral...looked like they'd moved a whole inch in a fortnight.

The pleasures of 'flying' in Blue Water.

We didn't see any turtles during the dive...but no problem as they came round the boat once we were all onboard.

Great trip.......I have a family of divers arriving in March....maybe time to sneak another liveaboard trip in if they're up for it?????
