Bahamas

Week #8 Monday began with our usual breakfast of porridge and much needed coffee for the busy day ahead. The first dive started with a bit of telepathy on my part, as I noted that the weather ‘felt sharky’. As we dropped down to our favourite dive site Ampi we were instantly greeted by 2 Caribbean reef sharks – giving … Read More

We set out afloat on the bathtub boat with our dive gear kitted together in the sunny weather. Sitting at the top of the boat we could … Read More
