Diving Great Barrier Reef

semi-overcast 22 °C

Spent 3 wicked days cruising and diving Great Barrier Reef. I'm an Advanced Open Water Diver now. Means I can dive down to 30 m. I picked Underwater photographer as speciality. (Pictures about to come soon) We also did navigation, buoyancy and computer diving.

This morning I saw a White Tipped Reef Shark (about 3 m) and a Green Turtle.

When doing a night dive the greatest attraction is the Red Bass. It will follow your torch and eat anything you point it at. Finally I can be god and decide about life and death *bruhahaha*

On the ship (Kankuroo Explorer) they had a pretty tough timetable. Every day we got up at 0530, did a morning dive before the sun came out, hat breakfast, did 2 more dives in the morning, one in the afternoon and one at night. When you go to bed you can virtually feel the nitrogen making you tired. But it might be as well the beer.

Next thing to do: In Cairns there is an organisation called Reef Teach. They talk about the fish you find out there. I think I'll pay them a visit once I had 8 hours of sleep in a row.
