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.

COMMENTS:

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!
