Inside the Hirokawa Maru

Postby alijtaylor » Mon Jun 07, 2010 8:45 am

Back at Bonegi 1 on Sunday I tagged along with Rohan and a number of others to explore a long swim thru in the hull of the Hirokawa Maru. I had the camera on 800 ASA but even so the lighting was a bit of a challenge. It is pretty hard to work out what the bits of debris were..

On exit at about 45m a green turtle came past for a look

My buddy Tim and I decided to do the second dive on the same site

As usual water 30C, viz about 20m and no swell at all so ideal conditions.

Cheers
