Weather has been very unstable lately, and it was rainy all day…  Fortunately the water temperature was warmer than on the ground 🙂

 

It is rather dark in the water when there is no sunshine, but you can still enjoy variety of color in the water.

 

Take a close look – colors of Nudibranchs are amazing…

 

Our guest from Sweden joined our refresh program, after 24 years of blank period! All the gears probably looked different? But the skills are much the same, and it didn’t take long to refresh memory!

 

Corals around Sakieda area recovered quite a bit, from the damage of Crown of thorn starfish around 10 years ago.

 

Unfortunately there was no Manta at the Manta Point… Hopefully next time!
