After diving yesterday, we moved the short hop over to Big Brother Island and moored overnight. So with the theme of a liveaboard being getup early, eat snack, dive, eat breakfast, dive, eat lunch, dive, eat afternoon tea, dive, eat dinner. we started early - but only part of the group made it.
First dive started with a zodiac ride to the ridge on the south end (boat moored at the North end)…we were met by a moray eel as we descended… first part of the dive was a little bland and lots of rubbish. Did see lionfish, clownfish, and stonefish, best part of the dive was towards the end after we passed the metal jetty on the way back to the bat.
Dive two was our first wreck of the trip the Namida so a brief penetration into the boiler room followed by a swim – current assisted towards the Aida engine (which Rachel did not see!– just tell me how you miss that!). Reef here prettier than the morning dive.
Due to potential bad weather we voted to start the journey back north and break for a third dive as a night dive – Middle reef at Sharm el-Naga
The key message on this dive was move slowly and you see some amazing things. An octopus, which was really fascinating to watch as it moved and changed colour to match its environment. Large Moray eel out hunting, sea feathers, spiders, boxfish, blue spotted ray and lionfish…
Now the boat continues to move north
