Dive 1, 7:30am, Malayan Wreck
Blue water hang at 20 meters, waiting for schooling hammerhead sharks to pass by. This was a test of patience. We have never been lucky with hammerheads and often have to explain to the dive masters that we bring bad hammerhead luck. But the plankton was interesting. There was a cool translucent slug moving its entire body for propulsion. Too bad we didn’t have our aquarium.
Dive 2, 10:30, Ko-ok
Briefing was great – schooling jacks, barracudas, bumphead parrotfish! When Wayne the boat manager checked the current and saw the school of bumphead parrotfish, he made us anticipate the dive, and we dropped in 100 meters behind them. We drifted with the current towards the point where the schooling fish were, but as luck would have it, the current changed direction! Bummer! So it was a nice ride back. Along the way, saw an eagle ray on a mission and lots of blue triggerfish.
Dive 3, 16:30, Delsan Wreck
