While in Tauch Terminal, the easy access to the Liberty Wreck and a house reef made us dive and dive and dive till we couldn’t see straight anymore. And we had LONG dives. The house reef or Coral Garden had an incredible cleaning station at 27 meters with massive amounts of cleaner shrimps.
And the fish came for a cleaning nibble. Nowhere else in our dive travels so far could we just stay within a few centimeters of a grouper or a trigger fish without it swimming away before its picture was taken, except here. The fish were really oblivious of us. It’s either they are so used to bubbles or the cleaning is just first class. Here are some fish portraits:
Then with a little 25 minute boat ride, we dived another muck haven called Seraya. It was just mind blowing to dive and see 4 to 5 harlequin ghost pipefishes, hundreds of razorfish, and other mad creatures. It was hard to surface for fear of missing the next interesting critter!
And some more pictures from the Liberty Wreck:
