Layang Layang Blues

Diving in Layang Layang, Sabah, Malaysia. The cheapest place to see schooling Hammerheads annually (if you are lucky).

Another Surface Interval

It has been quite a quiet week, depending on whom is judging it.

Wx- sunshine earlier but the wind and rain started hitting us about 4 days ago (we heard the same happened for KK and KL). Sea- from flat (earlier in the week) to 2m for the past few days. Vis- always the same, better when the sun was shining.

Pelagic sighting is about the same as in the past. Single hammerhead, mobulars, manta, dolphins, grey reefs and horse eyes. Corals still look good but nobody seems to be interested in them except the DMs.

REMIINDER- we do not have a doctor on the island and that goes for the ambulance as well. Please do not only be careful with your dive profiles, accidents do happen on land too, like breaking a bone, jog til you drop, gooie stuff coming out of your ear or something like that. Any accident that requires a doctor or hospital. If you should decide to tempt fate or the great one above, make sure you have a fully paid up insurance policy for evacuation and all other cost involved. About 15k and the likelihood that the aircraft is not available at the time you need it most.

We just had a guy that broke his thumb in 2 places while snorkelling. HAH, you wondering how it happened right? That is why they call it an accident, because you cannot imagine it ever happening to you while doing something so simple. Or the time when another guy broke his arm just because his "friend" wanted to throw him in the pool. You noticed it is only the guys that have "accidents"? We will tell you how it happened if ever we meet you, plus a lot more stories if you want to listen, laugh and learn.

Until the next story, goodbye, good luck and take care. Bye.

    Talking about insurance... Should advise all divers to purchase and BRING ALONG their insurance details in case of emergency. Also to provide an emergency contact person in case travelling alone. At least own country's embassy phone number. Something to think about???
