It was so good to be back in the water. We'd gone 18 months without diving but they said if we felt comfortable enough then we didnt need to do a refresher. I'm so glad as this dive was great and we would have missed out.
We didnt go too deep so it was a long dive, which I like. From the beginning, a shark remora attached itself to Richard and wouldn't leave him alone. We saw a blue spotted stingray hiding under rocks, a bearded scorpionfish, trumpetfish and a masked porcupinefish which were pretty cool. We also saw a juvenile ribbon eel, pipefish and a turtle with 2 big remoras in tow
This was also the first time out for my brand shiny new dive computer which was good. I'm not sure how much attention I paid to it as there was a lot to see, but it was good to look at afterwards to see temperature and depth.
The instructor was great too as after the dive he sat with us and went through all the fish & nudibranchs we'd seen, showing us in the books.
