I cant think of anything more relaxing, than being in the downunder, breathing some nice clean fresh filtered 21% nitrox.

The Demisil shots were taken at the Chicks on Sunday.
Vis was 10-15 meters.
Max depth was 38 meters
Dive time 64 minutes
Second dive was 26 meters 35 minutes

Lots of fish around but nothing big. Plenty of juvenile snapper. Found a small nest of crays but not worth taking any. I heard there was a fishing comp on that weekend and the only cray presented was pretty small so perhaps not a lot around at the moment. Although I have since talked to someone else who was out there too and they got some.


Other shots were all at "The Sisters" @ BOI
34 meters 74 minutes.
Vis was 15-20 meters
Sting ray, Eagle Ray, Painted Moki, Porcupine fish etc etc.
Always a nice site and of course always a good bunch of divers with Northland dive.

The Porcupine fish was in a small cave at 34 meters. I felt a bit guilty about blocking the exit but it did give me a good photo opportunity. Also in the cave was a Conga eel and a banded shrimp but I thought it best to leave them all as opposed to evicting the porc to get pics of the other two.

Second dive was at Sonic Boom cave & Big Eye Lare (??) 61 minutes 31 meters.
Vis wasnt quite as good but still a great dive.
