Green water diving at Cook Island

Yesterday’s dive was one of the most exciting dives we have done at Cook Island.  With a maximum of 5 metres visability (and that’s exaggerating ) the bait fish and the sharks were all around us and up close.  Add to that constant and loud whale song, it all made for a memorable and slightly spooky green water dive.

And to think, our plan was to find the anemone fish eggs that I photographed last week to see whether they had hatched.  We couldn’t find them, but there was way too much going on around us to worry about it.

I will let the pictures do the talking.

Grey nurse shark.  I know, it’s not a good photo, but she came in real close (about 1 metre) before she saw us and then decided to turn away.  I was too mesmerised to take a photo when she was up close.
