A beautiful wreck to kick off our PADI Advanced Open Water Course. It was carrying Italian floor tiles which you can still see amongst the copius amounts of coral.

We saw lion fish, anthias, damsels and clown fish.

A lovely reef to work on our PADI Advanced Course Navigation Dive. We stretched out our 30m line on a sandy patch with bommies all around.

During our nav patterns we saw lionfish, trumpet fish, and a massive porcupine puffer.

We jumped at the chance to scuttle off with a pair of scooters. The wreck was interesting, but a blur as it whizzed past underneath us.

We saw loads of reef fish... briefly! But we did see a lovely little cuttlefish when we stopped in the shallows for our safety stop.

COMMENTS:

After last night's practise, the team were ready for their Adventure Night Dive to count towards their Advanced Course. The reef was teeming with life, there was even a little bit of bioluminescence when we blacked out the torches.

We saw 8 trumpet fish all huddled together and lion fish hunting in our torch light.
