Still quite warm water due to exceptional warm weather in December. Bigger groupers, now that Rangers keep an eye on illegal fishing. Good.
Nice relaxing dive, still in wetsuit. Does get somewhat cold after 40min. Moray on Rozi, Octopus on reef, many fish on reef.
Loads of fish following towards and on Rozi, even groupers. Many Scorpion fish on reef and Rozi. Nice rarely seen Fork Beard in hold. Great
Leuke boot om eens op te duiken, op de terug weg kwamen we ook nog een octopus tegen, wel heeel veeel stroming gehad
Astonishing dive today. Loads of fish on Rozi. Big Groupers, Scorpionfish, Triggerfish, Octopus, egg laying Flabellinas, Blue runner, Jacks.
Hmm, heb leukere wrakken gezien, weinig leven op t wrak behalve de 100 duikers
Rozi, Right Arch and back. Being followed all way by 1 specific Amberjack and came close, having no fear opposite other years.\nLots of fish.
My first salty drysuit dive. Nice dive towards Rozi. Moray Eel, big Groupers, lots of other fish. \nChris leading the way.
As usual, nice relaxing dive. Temps are rising, thermocline around 20 meters. Bit of milky algae/plankton bloom, not too bad.
First ones on wreck today. Great visibility at depth, easily 30-50m. Warm at depth. Groupers, amberjacks. Right arch, 2 swimthroughs. Relax!
Hele mooie duikstek, super zicht! Op de terugweg nog een paar mooie rotsformaties en tunnels gepasseerd, veel jonge vis, heerlijk gedoken!
Ondiep uitgezwommen en daarna afgedaald naar het wrak. Veel vissen en wat kleine nudibranch.
Chris guiding. Nice dive in fair water. A bit milky though. Not a lot of life yet on the Rozi.
