|How many instructors can you fit on a jet ski? Three apparently.......|
It's been a little while since we dived Babylon and it was still as glorious as ever. It was missing a few rope sponges here and there but given the nature of the site, only to be expected.
Captain Nige warned us before hand of a particularly active moray eel and sure enough the mad bastard was out and doing endless laps around and around the pinnacle as though he was in a race. He was probably on the hunt but he didn't mind us and we didn't mind him. I'm surprised he didn't get dizzy and fall off. We let him be to do his own thing.....
The colours were as vibrant as I remember them to be and the area teaming with life. grunts, sweetlips, angel fish, fusiliers, snappers, triggerfish, sergeant majors, they were all there. It was like a check list of all the usual suspects and then some.
We could have swam off to Julies or Mcurleys but with scenery like this, why go anywhere else?
After the half time oranges (and a few green faces), we took a short ride to a new site I haven't dived before called Top Secret which is unique for having coral that feed during day time, rather than more commonly at night.
I will be honest here, I felt that there are better sites than Top Secret. I wasn't that impressed by it and I tried really hard to find the small stuff here but it was pretty challenging. It wasn't a bad site but I think there are better options out there (in my humble opinion of course). But at least it's another place crossed off on the list of sites to dive.
A big thanks to Tortuga Divers for letting us jump off their perfectly good boat and to Captain Nige, Miss Lindsey and Miss Ellie for looking after us and eating cookies. Till the next time, off and clear.
