As if my hands didn't stop stinging that whole dive. Note to self - it's 4 deg you muppet! Jeremy smashed off his dry suit instructor skills and we had a nice long dive to the newer plane.

The conditions were amazing for this time of the year... is it really only February?! We were fighting against the current for half the dive as it took us a while to get down. But once we got round the corner it was plain sailing and a lush drift. Soft coral everywhere, urchins, squat lobsters and a mahoosive cod hiding in a crack in the rocks. It had a huge scar down it's back. What has it been up to?? We saw plenty seals on the surface, but none came to play this time.

This dive site doesn't have a name, so we've given it one! An awesome little drift dive hovering just about the fields of dead mans fingers. A cheeky seal even joined us a couple of times as we floated around!
