Down in Belongas this week the conditions have been great with almost no current, small waves, around 25 meter visibility and a few sneaky sea snakes thrown in.
As some of you may know, we get quite a bit of sea snakes in Belongas and may also know that they have no fear of divers and quite often take a short cut through the divers’ BCD. In Belongas, we mainly get Olive sea snakes but occasionally see the banded sea snake and if you do a dive to the cathedral you will probably see more than you have ever seen before. Sadly there has only been one sighting of the hammer heads this week and no sign of the mobulas yet, but there has still been a lot to see with loads of White tip reef sharks, schooling barracuda, Humphead wrasse, Pygmy sea horse, Blue spotted sting rays, schools of Bat fish, nudibranches, Giant trevallies, yellow tail Tuna, lobsters and many many more. Although the weather over in Sekotong has been a little rainy it has not been the case in Belongas with beautiful sunshine making for the great visibility and awesome dives this week.
