DUP Specialty @ Sail Rock
As already mentioned in yesterday’s post, today we would complete the Instructor Specialty training with a DUP dive. We started the day however with a Multilevel dive and there was some great visibility and it was a great reminder why Sail Rock is my favorite dive site in the Gulf of Thailand.
The pictures turned out so well that I had to post them, so here are some of today’s selection.
This picture is taken at around 28 meters depth and I hope it shows a little bit what I experienced.
During the second dive of the day, the actual DUP dive, Bruno spotted this jellyfish off the wall and I swam over and got some great pictures. As usual, there was small fish swimming around and inside the jelly, feeding off it. The interesting part however is that a bigger fish is trapped inside the jellyfish and is being consumed by said jelly. If you look closely you can see the tail of the fish sticking out a bit to the left in the middle of the picture, with the big shiny thing under the jelly’s skin being the body of the trapped fish.
It was underwater animal galore today and we saw plenty of white eyed murray eels, this being one of them. Some of the divers on today’s trip also spotted a giant murray eel. It turned out that we were deeper than the giant’s murray location on the rock, hence we missed it.
