An abundance of the spectacular Ornate Ghost Pipefish here in Sekotong this week. Casandra and Stefan joined us this week for some diving and were very happy with it. Yes they got to see the beautiful Ornate Ghost Pipefish hiding amongst the feather stars along with turtles, nudibranchs, Cuttle fish which Casandre admitted was her absolute favorite and a whole range of shrimps.
Also this week we had Laura joining us for a couple of dives with our dive master Bagyo and came back very happy after dives. Laura got to see the amazingly cute Pygmy seahorse, giant moray eels, lionfish, Indian ocean Walkman, wrasses, turtles and got to play with a huge group of sardines. Although the visibility was not as good as usual she still thoroughly enjoyed her dive.
The boat men have again been reporting sightings of the elusive dugong out on our dive sights while we have been diving, but unluckily we are still yet to see it under water. We will all be keeping our fingers crossed in the near future for a chance to observe this beautiful creature.
This week here in Sekotong the weather has been hot hot hot with one day of rain that lasted about two hours. The water has been nice and hot as well holding around 28 degrees C, we have had some mild currents, no waves and the visibility at around 15 meters.
