Taka dive excursion – Steve’s bommie

Steve’s bommie is a small pinnacle of isolated reef, with a maximum depth of around 30 metres rising to 5 metres.  The water is always clear, visibility is usually around 20 metres plus with loads and loads of fish life.  The dive site is also the second most popular site to see Minke Whales.  We did two dives here on day one and it was a good opportunity for me to get familiar with my new camera.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, we didn’t see Minke whales on this day.

Injured Travally.

Injured Travally.  I photographed this Travally when we were on our way back to the boat.  You could actually see the backbone on the other side of the fish.  It’s amazing that it was still swimming around with the school.
