Reef Teach

Nothing much today but relaxing. In the evening I attended Reef Teach with Susie. Reef Teach is an educational (and entertaining) lecture about the reef eco-system. It is presented by Paddy Colwell in a rather funny way. A bit of Shakesperian drama I would say. It is certainly a must for non-aware diver and snorkeler and it is quite a good thing that this lecture is offered before going out to sea with a liveaboard such as ProDive. After the lecture I asked Paddy about the status of Holmes Reef as I was quite disappointed with the marine life here (as can be read in my liveaboard report) and he told us that it was bleached rather recently (in the last 2 years). A shame that the liveaboard I took is still trying to mislead customers with a reef that nearly died and is in a recovery process.
