Chester, United Kingdom
December 5, 2004
It was really rewarding diving. I did a nitrox course here, which was fabulous.
I saw sharks (white-tip reefs), turtles, trumpet fish, stonefish, lionfish, boxfish, nudibranches, blue-spot rays, morays, giant cuttlefish, anemone crabs, groupers, parrotfish, snappers, angelfish, triggers, bumpheads, clownfish, butterfly fish, and good coral: brain, Acropora, staghorn, elephant ear, plate, star, and Gorgonian fans.
Simons Reef is good, as are Deep Halik and Deep Turbo. The best site I did was Takat Tunang, which isn't on the website. It's very deep, and I was pushed to my decompression limits on air, but the coral wall is excellent!
