his dive story / 44

Another awesome day diving at Northwest Point. We had been diving mostly West Caicos, the Channel and French Cay lately as the north side of Provo has been battered with strong surges.

The first dive was at Amphitheater and it is by far one of my favorite dive sites as the reef wall just drops and drops in what appears to be like seats at an amphitheater. We did the right wall this time and it was amazing with just about the right amount of sunlight coming down.

The second dive was at Thunderdome, which was once a location of a French tv show similar to Survivor. The structure has all crumbled but the sea life there is great. We usually stop by here after doing our wall dive.

I tried to stack my macro lens to catch these little fishes call blenny. I am trying to catch them when they shoot out as you can see the entire length of their body. Really cool but next time!

Enjoy the video and pics. Soon, it will be time to start wearing my 3mm but for now at 25c, I am still on 7mm.  :)

his dive story / 43

It’s me again after a couple of weeks off diving due to a flu and bad sea conditions. In fact, we still have not dived out in Grace Bay at all as the sea has been very rough coming from the north. The water temp has dropped to about 25c and I have been wearing my 7mm suit. I am starting to enjoy using my new camera gear setup and playing with the wide angle lens. I think I need to get the dome next! :)

These pics show the different types of sea creatures we have in abundance. I love the crab. The picture does not do any justice to the size of this crab as it was BIG and missing one giant claw! It was not shy at all and wasn’t bothered that I was trying to get a close up.

The blue and black fishes that you see are really pretty to look at and I have not seen them in a group like that before.

And then those baby blue parrot fishes are definitely feeding off the corals. They are so cool to watch when they swim together in a big group.

Enjoy and until next time, hopefully, we will get to dive Grace Bay again.
