Now that it is getting a bit cold for free diving, the trips will be reduced in numbers from now on as we concentrate more so on other activities.
This trip had a boat load head out for the whole day and it was a top day.
We had smooth seas, reasonable vis and all found some thing nice for our aquariums.

The day started off with a nice sunrise.

A couple of photosynthetic sponge species for the aquariums.
This one is toxic and should handled carefully due to the toxins it may expel once in the aquarium. They settle down and they are fine and carry out great nutrient importing.

Great pics mate- thanks for sharing, you got some really nice photos there. I particularly like the pool of anemones.-- they are cool.

That pic Danny took looks like its volcanic rock - floating near the surface of a shallow pool - very cool looking effect Shocked

Excellent stuff

Cool

Mate that pic was taken in a shallow pool of around 10 inches of water with sand below and some foam on top of the water.
The barnacles are attached to pumic and it is just hovering between the sand to the top of the water and there is a shadow above and below.
That’s what makes it a great pic,it is sort of no where, but with a shadow above and below on nothing that is definable?
