1 August 2006

weather: rain in the morning, sunny for the rest of the day
sea condition: slightly choppy in the morning, viz 12m-20m
guides: Allan & Bobby, Jason, Jay

A good day again for diving. It did rain in the morning but the viz surprisingly was good. There were some good stuffs today in Sipadan. Jason's group saw a group of white tip reef sharks and giant trevallies hunting the jacks. His group also had a very close encounter with a big school of barracudas. The school actually circled the divers for a few seconds before swimming away into the blue!! Meanwhile Allan & Bobby's group saw a leopard shark. Plus we simply cannot miss out the tonnes of turtles swimming past while diving in Sipadan. There were also alot of small stuffs...leaf fish, scorpion fish, cuttlefish, crocodile fish, frogfish, pygmy seahorse, and loads of shrimps and nudibranchs.
We can't get any pics of the fishes today, but we do have an intersting picture though...The pic below shows 3 banded sea snakes coiled together at the entrance of the dive centre. One of the guest found them sleeping under the steps...
We hope to be able to get some pics underwater tomorrow guys....ChEErS !!
