Diving this morning to see the Niue sea-snakes - 10x more poisonous
and deadly than a boa / python etc
Our dive team consisted of Niue dive, plus Gary and Mike from
Shellette and the FC crew.
On the way we came across this great pod of spinner dolphins.
Because the water is clear (70m of visibility) and deep there is not a
huge amount of coral, however where there is coral it is stunning.
It was a bit cold for a shorty, but it was all i had!
Under one of the mini caves we found this very colourful Scorpion fish
- highly deadly!
Here our divemaster handles one of the sea snakes - they were
Another feature of Niue is the great underwater caves and cravasses,
which we enjoyed looking around.
Of course after diving it was time for lunch, and what better way for
the crews of FC and Shellete to get to know each other. Of course that
lead to a plan for cocktails on one boat, followed by dinner on another!
