Trimaran, Goulding Cay, Shark Wall, Shark Dive


Pretty busy day as we did 4 dives. We decided to go diving with Stuart Cove's in the afternoon to look out for carribean reef shark and get pretty exciting dives. As it is 10 miles from Stuart Cove's, it is not really doable with a dinghy. In the morning, as the movie 'Into the Blue' was being shot close to Clifton wall, we went to the Trimaran wreck which has no mooring as it is gone as of this writing but were told it was in bearing 170 from the middle of the Willaurie. It is easy to find (once you know where to go) and I would say it is about 150m from the Willaurie at a depth of 22m. We then did a shallow dive at Goulding Cay which is full of Elkhorn Coral so near the surface that they are awash at low tide. I was able to see a magnificent spotted eagle ray swimming in less than 3m of water.

Thanks Bob, It's nice to have some comments from a master professional photographer like you . Hope to see you again in another great trip. If all is well, why not Wakatobi ?

I for one am hoping you can make Wakatobi my friend.

Will have first to find a -very- good job so that I can manage Wakatobi, a full Canon Rebel set with INON strobes and a set of lenses (and knitting needles, of course) )

Not sure if you know but I now have the Rebel and will have the Aquatica housing on a few weeks.On land I love the camera!

Also 220 Inon strobes just can't afford those knitting needles. LOL
