Drifting down the reef with Napoleon wrasse bigger than a Saint Bernard is a thrill. Large trevally jacks, mackerel, and dogtooth tuna prowle the walls.”
The names of those diving spots still ring as music in my ears, Ko Raja Noi, Wageli Faru, Lions Head (sharkfeeding !), Careless Reef, Shab Rough, Abu Ramati, El Jardin del Reina, El Ancla del Corsario, Maaya Tila, Batala, Fish Head, Maadi Vavu (Hammerheads !!) and so on. Take look at some of my dives in my old diving log!
In 1999 we dived on Mauritius and may/june 2000 made a trip to Peru and on the way back we made a stopover in Aruba(Dutch Antilles) in the Caribbean and did some diving over there.
It has been a few years since we made the Aruba dives, but in 2010 we travelled to Hawaii, Kona (The Big Island) and we picked up diving again. The highlight was The Manta Ray Night Dive, this is a “MUST DO” trip. The average number of feeding rays per night averages between one and four but can easily exceed 10 or even more with an all time high one night in May 2008 of an unprecedented 36 rays on one night!
In 2013 we made a big trip to South Africa to enjoy the scenery and the wildlife. We watched the whales at Hermanus and made a trip to Gansbaai, the White Shark Capitol of the World!. We made White shark cage dive with White Shark Projects near Dyer Island, just off the coast of Kleinbaai / Gansbaai.
In april / May 2016 we traveled for 4 weeks, hopping islands, in Hawaii, we visited Maui, Kauai and Kona. On Kauia I did a few boatdives with Sea Sport divers in Poipu.
“Every time you dive, you hope you’ll see something new – some new species.
Sometimes the ocean gives you a gift, sometimes it doesn’t.”
