Description: I have only done this dive at night, and it's a super dive at night. I'm told daytime is not quite as good and we never actually managed to get right out to the reef itself, so I will have to describe that another dive.
Most of us on this dive were here to shoot Macro subjects, and there is no shortage of that size critters to shoot. Of course you run out of film way before the dive is over, so you miss out on some wonderful shots, like the bubble shell with its beautiful mantle fully exposed - no film left!
The bottom is sand mixed with small shells, occasional rocks and sea grass, oh and LOTS of bottles of all types and sizes! It is here we spent all our time, shooting Sea Hares, Nudibranchs, Box Fish, Sea Horses, Cuttle Fish, Cling Fish, Leather Jackets, Crabs, Octopus and so many other amazing creatures.
We were down for 80 minutes and never went deeper than 8 mtrs, it's a dive I am looking forward to doing again, and again!
