We saw a honeycomb moray eel in a hole. The moray eels here are much smaller than the ones in Egypt, I'm not sure if they are juviniles or just smaller. There was also a blotched fantail ray which stayed around for a while. It didn't seem phased by us all.
The dives sites were about 40mins from the bay so we had a long trip back in the hot sun to look forward too which I wasn't too happy about
The crew told us to get our mask and snorkel ona nd we all got in hoping it would stay around. It did. We got to swim with it for about 10 minutes before it dived down out of site. There were only 5 of us in the water and we were much smaller than it so I don't think it was bothered at all by us. I managed to get quite a few lovely pictures even though I wasn't really looking at my camera and just swimming with the shark.
That certainly made the boat trip back a lot better!!!
