Layang Layang Blues

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

Same Same Again

Wx- Sunshine in the morning and passing shower in the afternoon, Sea- a little bit choppy but considered calm for Layang Layang standards.

Sightings of 2 hammerheads (only 2, so boring), pod of dolphins, mobulars again and manta. Don't take it as the norm for Layang Layang diving. All the rest of the corals, trevally, sea horses, ghost pipe fish are still around.

As for the birds, we have not been to the bird island often enough to tell you the chicks progress. But, why do you want to go suffer the bad smell and look at those chicks when there are other old(matured) birds and young chicks walking around in their bikinis (and they don't smell as bad too)?

The resort staff had a day outing as well. Some went snorkelling and others went diving. Only problem was, the divers complained that they did not see the hammerheads. In their limited diving opinion, it was a bad dive and they want their money back. We wonder where they picked that up from? Recognise any of them that served you when you were here?

Now that the blog has started again, let's see how long it will last before another break. We have been logging a lot of stats of the various pelagics over the years. We will definitely try to post that when the time is right. But then, we are also afraid that you will take it as gospel and overindulge in your expectations and fantasy. Bye.

    What??? "2 hammerheads" is ANYTIME BETTER than NONE!!! I'm holding back the urge to fly back there ever since I got back to the city. Already having withdrawal symptoms after leaving Layang-Layang. :(
