The mornings guide was Rob for a 10 min rib ride out to Tesoro Negro...again thanks to Rolle for his magic gum!
Deeper dive site covered in black coral. Massive Scorpion fish lives here!
The afternoon dive guide was Henrick and we hopped back on the Rib for another 10 min ride to el mirador. A rugged deep gorge with a deep drop off, ideal for the Barracuda that greeted us as soon as we dropped over the edge.
Lots of interesting overhangs, pretty topography and lots of nooks and crannys to explore, found a tiny white and purple nudibranch. Huge grouper found hiding under a overhang. Also seen were bleny, fireworms, amber jacks, glass eye fish, parrot fish and a flounder.
Unfortunately for us it seemed we were on the wrong boat....they apparently saw a massive turtle at Barranco....but no photo.... So in our world of no picture it not count - Danny sorry it doesn't count?!
Today's guide- Henrick
Dive 1- Aiming to dive El Tazar but the current decided otherwise and took us to the next site along, Tesoro Negro.
Same site as yesterday but the current was against us!
Dive 2- El Muellito
The whole group took the 10 min rib ride out. Reefs dropped off to 40m.
Big nudibranch & a group of grumpy grouper that came flying round a corner and there was a moment of anticipation to see why or what they were rushing for/from! But alas, nothing.... seemed no reason at all - it is a little like that car journey where you slow down for ages, thinking an accident ahead and then all of a sudden you are driving back at a normal speed!
The boat ride back was the soggiest trip yet! Waves crashing over us all as we bounced back to the dive centre.
Dive 3- night dive
The two Rachel's went with guides Danny and Shannon to see Mole by night. The first ever night dive for one of them! The visibility was amazing despite the darkness. The octopus came out hunting and we managed to find it, he came sooooo close at one point we thought he was going to land on the go pro or ink at us!
Massive sea hares were everywhere, and there was a cute little yellow nudibranch... Although Danny didn't share his Atlantic Ray with the rest of us!
So that brings us to the end of our dive trip here in Fuerteventura and leaves us to say thanks to every one at Deep Blue Diving, its been great fun... and see you again soon.
