Beautiful weather today with sunshine and black forest was our top choice this morning our guest not regret diving here as it has so many fish life and lots of soft and black coral but when the tide turns and begin to flow, and astonishing awakening occurs. Colonies of soft coral which were dull – looking lumps begin to waken. It’s really amazing to see their intricately bodies – branched bodies with water they spread their arms across the flow, anthias fish were everywhere, butterfly fish and a pair of puffer fish were also on the show. Next dive at North save a tack wall we did two dives here and the main attraction at north wall is the schooling of fish as they travel in schools but today we saw school of jacks, school of barracudas, Green eyed trigger fish, grey and white tip sharks, bump head leather back turtle and much more.
