After a wonderful dive on the Annie M Miller, a
shallower dive was called for. When we arrived at Magic Point Pro
Dive's big boat was preparing to leave. It looked like a dozen or
so divers on the boat had been down to visit the sharks. The DM on
boat told me they had only seen 2 GNS. I expect the big group
scared them away.
Down we went and took up our position,
floating just off the bottom outside the cave. First thing we
noticed is that there were no PJs there. Must be time for them to
start leaving. The first GNS that I saw had a fishing hook and
line dangling from it's mouth. I found this distressing and wanted
to remove it, but of course that would have been impossible. A
second large GNS appeared and a few minutes later 2 smaller ones.
The cam quite close to us, I could have reached out and touched them
easily. They were checking us out as we were checking them out. I
had a look above the cave where there were schools of yellowtail and
stripeys. In a very small crack was a small wobbie. How it
got in there I don't know. Viz was not good at all - there was a
lot of particles in the water making photos hard to get.
