  Dive No. 826/827 - Thursday June 13th - Little Munsom - mild waves - medium current - visibility 12m - air 24C - water 22C until 12m, 19C at 20m and deeper

The rain stopped in the morning and we went out for diving at 12:00 with 2 divers from Seoul. Entering the water at Little Munsom we could see the bottom in 14m.

At the drop-off were the rope ends we saw a rather big grouper (epinephelus brunneus) of 70 cm swiming between the rock. It was nervous, hiding in the kelp for bit, came out again and finally disappeared. I like groupers, they have such an impressive expression in their face and seeing one under water always feels special to me. If they would only have a chance to grow to their maximun size of 2 meters here.

On the second dive we saw a bulgyhead wrasse of about the same size as the grouper. Only the male adult have a humplike bulgy forehead. These fellows break oysters and abalone from the rock and crack them open with their strong teeth. Have a close look at those teeth if you ever see one....

Safe diving

Ralf
