The morning dives were drift dives along the drop off at Cape Marshall; the only problem was the visibility was less than five metres and although we saw mantas I got pretty frustrated with the whole thing and decided to pass on the rest of the dives and clean up my dive gear instead.
This trip has been fantastic. Lots of big animals and great shark action, along with some very challenging diving. I have over thirteen hundred dives and there were a couple of times I was very uncomfortable down there. I can’t imagine why dive operators would even consider anyone with less than a hundred dives going in the water. This is certainly diving for grown ups but I loved it. Going with a great bunch of photographers, many of whom are now good friends who all respect the reef, has helped to make it a memorable trip.
