Castle Rock, Komodo

Just insane! Sharks literally EVERYWHERE! We dropped down to 28 meters and there were a pack of hunting Grey Sharks, amazing and they are huge! There is a bowl at 5 m where we did our safety stop as the current whirled around us – it was the perfect shelter and end to a perfect dive. My favourite so far!

Boulari Pass Island

The minimum to be expected to see in South-Pacific can be observed during the first ten minutes: multicolored tropical fishes, huge triggerfishes, tunas, banks of carangs and phosphorescent corals. In the following fifteen minutes, local specialities have been observed in drifting dive: a big mother loach, some small black-tipped and white-tipped sharks (a metre fifty maximum), some grey sharks (two metres fifty maximum) and a big tortoise at a distance within ten metres. With that, one already can be satisfied and it is what Gérald was thinking whereas they were crossing a rather beautiful coral platter but with no more surrounding fauna: “And here we are, it is finished … Not bad at all!”...

Mafia Island, Zanzibar, Tanzania

Amazing reef with large potato groupers, humpback wrasse, hawksbill turtles, and plenty of parrot, butterfly and angelfish. There has been some damage by dynamite fishing but there are still areas with good diving.

Hunga Reef, Zanzibar, Tanzania

Lots of really nice hard and soft coral on this dive site but it was so full of reef fish that most of the time I couldn’t see much else. Great schools of barracuda, huge schools of snappers and some really nice bat fish. Cobias and schools of trevallies. Wonderful dive site.

Froggy Lair, Mabul

I dived with a group of divers come for Sipadan. There was a giant grouper family on the dive. At least 5 and 4 with yellow fins, up to 1.5 to 2 m. and a really big one, think about 2,5 m 600 pound or something the biggest thing I’ve ever seen diving!.
