Female paper nautilus all over this week on the blackwater and 2 Manta visits!
Amongst others, we had the chance to see big schools of Fusilier, Trevallies, Batfish as well as lobsters and colourful nudibranch.
Music, good atmosphere, and fun discussions made this superb evening one we will remember.
A big "surprise" 3rd day!
Our third dive for the day was at Koh Bon, diving the West Ridge where we spent the whole dive with a majestic Oceanic Manta Ray and a Spotted Eagle Ray swimming a ballet around all the divers from the boat. Wow! Everyone came back on the boat with stars in their eyes, excited to share the moment and photos with the other guests.
After dinner, we head offshore to the end fo the continental plateau for a perfect blackwater dive, what a great experience to see these pelagic and deep sea creatures we would never otherwise see. We saw the sea butterfly, paper nautilus, turnicates, jellyfish, a pelagic sea snake and so much more.
It was a first for most of the divers and everyone loved it! What a funny feeling to float motionless in this dark, but far from empty space!
A big thank you to mother nature for these two magnificent dives with these gentle giants!
To top it all off, Franck gave us an amazing photo presentation documenting the trip and all the amazing things we have witnessed while we ate yummy burgers as we made our smooth journey back to the pier to say our goodbyes.
Congratulation to Adrian, Laura, Jean Louis and Noelle for completing their Nitrox certifications and well done Xavier for your fantastic improvement with Franck's photographer's coaching.
