Back Again

Stand-in guest writers for “on-holiday” editors. Thanks for the support!
BACK …………. 30 June to 06 July
Wx- strong wind (passing typhoon in Philippines) and big big waves earlier in the week, past 3 days flat calm seas.

This week a mix group from Malaysia, Japan, Hong Kong, Denmark & Netherland on 2boats. Weather improved to calm flat sea with clear sunny sky. Moon & stars twinkle brightly above us.

School of hammerheads came back on July 05 morning for a quick show & then disappeared into depth. Lucky divers from only one boat saw them ………….. this proved sighting really depends on your luck (sigh!!!! You know which boat we were on …… not the ONE).

Dolphins sighted once riding waves of choppy sea rather than swimming along our boat. Pygmy seahorses tried to hide but we found them again!

Dogthooth tunas, manta rays, devil rays, jacks, barracudas, sharks (white tip & grey reef), leaf fishes & ghost pipe fishes were around to support the show. PTW

    Wow... Short & brief but still enjoying reading it. Really nice pics of the Dogtooth Tuna & the yellow leaf-fish.

    It's wonderful to know that the school of hammerheads are still hanging around. Hope they stay around for the underwater photo competition week!
