10 July 2006

weather: sunny, wind from south
sea condition: viz 3m-12m
guides: Bobby, Nina, Ron, Sophia, Allan, Jimmy, Jason
(pic of jackfish above by Damian) last, World Cup had finished, there's no need for us to stay up late every night to watch 22 men chasing a ball again for 4 years :-D. The weather today was very good, sunny with wind, very soothing, just like a paradise :-D
Underwater the viz was not that good, but we had awesome dives today. Sophia's group saw a school of chevron and stream line barracudas, big school jacks, a couple of grey reefs and a few yellow fin barracudas. Other big fishes sighted today were the giant trevallies, dogtooth tuna, and as usual lots of lots of turtles...
Jimmy brought a group for mangrove dive today. There were so much gobies that the divers lost lovers, u should come and have a mangrove dive with Jimmy. Allan found another flambuoyant cuttlefish today. The size of this one was smaller, but the color was just as...erm..."flambuoyant"...just take a look at this pic taken by Mutsumi san....

Lucky Sophia had good macro dives today also...her group saw flambuoyant cuttlefish, black sailfin goby and also giant jawfish. Never seen a giant jawfish? The pic below shows what a giant jawfish looks like...we think that "cute" is a good word to describe how it looks (Thanks Mutsumi for the excellent pic).

There were also many other things, lots of nudibranchs, shrimps and eels...too much to mention, but we'll try to post as much pics as possible in future post :-)
