More Scuba Diving

I got up early on our second day in Pulah Weh to take some pictures of the surrounding area with the morning light.

After breakfast, it was out to our boat for more scuba diving.

Our first dive site was an area called the Canyon. It should have been called the City. It was filled with building size boulders that gave it the feel of swimming down an underwater city block that was covered in coral. The following pictures were taken by Christy. The first one is of us descending to start the dive.

There was a cool rock archway to swim under.

We then motored over to another dive site called Hot Spring.

Check out Maddie’s cool scuba hood that they let her use.

Hot Spring had two main features. One was the geothermal vents that spewed warm sulfuric gas from the bottom of the ocean. It was fun to swim thru, but we didn’t get good pictures. The second was this amazingly friendly and persistent puffer fish that we fed. This series of underwater shots is from Noer Muis.

This dive was much shallower than the rest and we had plenty of time to explore.

We ended the day by exploring the tidal pools at low tide.
