|We have done some excellent diving in the past few days and have spent the nights anchored on Norman Island and Salt Island. |
From Norman Island we dived a site called Angel Fish Reef which sounded OK in the book but we weren't expecting much, however, we had a fantastic dive - just one other yacht over at the site and we didn't actually see them diving. The site is by some rocks on a headland, we saw a fleeting glimpse of a blacktip shark, unfortunately it saw us and disappeared, also saw large Barracuda and a 3ft Tarpon. Turtles here don't seem to notice divers and I swam over one about 2 feet away without noticing it until Adam pointed it out. However, the best find was the Monster Stingray that we found on the sand - about 7ft long and probably weighing more than I do.
I asked Adam to pose, nose to nose with the Ray - he refused to go closer than about 5 feet away. . . I am not sure who looks the most menacing . . .
