Our adventures

Japanese Gardens on the 27th Feb’12 (am)

Today we were diving at Japanese Gardens. The weather was beautiful and the conditions were perfect. We headed out on our boat to the dive site and geared up ready for the first dive. For this dive I would be following Demetri on the last day of his Open Water Diver course.


We descended onto some sand to complete some skills for the dive before making our way to the coral bay that make up the dive site. We swam north and around the corner of the bay where there was loads to see including Triggerfish, Blue Spotted Rays and tonnes of Nudibranches. We got back on the boat with Demetri buzzing from the dive. Everyone spent an hour enjoying the calm conditions and sun before gearing up for our second dive.

For this dive I was following Charlotte out on a fun dive while her boyfriend completed his Advanced Open Water course. This time around we swam south out of the bay to see what we could find. The visibility this side was not quite as good as the north but still a lovely dive, with large Angelfish, Nudibranches, Emperor Fish and even a Juvenile Harlequin Sweetlips. After the short journey back to the shop all the students and divers had time to fill in their log books and paperwork before I put all the photos from the day up on the big screen in the shop.
