It was a windy day.

We managed to go to the Manta Point, but the sea was swelly, and we were all swinging, including a Manta 🙂


We saw one Manta at the cleaning station, and it circled over the cleaning station while we were watching!


Got a memorial shot with the Manta!


An Octopus was surprised to see so many divers…


Some of the teams saw a huge school of Indian Mackerel!


Experts went down deep to meet these guys – Dinah’s goby.


There were eggs right under the anemone.

Looking forward to meeting the babies!


A juvenile Sea goldie and a Stout chromis hanging out together – rare shot 🙂
