Car Pile is now THE place to spot turtles!

Today we had a nice dive on Car Pile as part of the PADI Deep Diver Spec. Nothing much out of the ordinary much happened until we reached the Car Pile and descended to about 27 meters/89 feet. There it was, a beautiful Green Turtle! We spend at least 5 minutes just watching it, chilling out and swimming up and away after it realized it had an audience...

A rather lovely Green Turtle

Just spotting this Green Turtle would have made this a great dive. But that was not all. After coming back up to about 20 feet we spotted a Spotted Moray (pun intended ;-)), a Goldentail Moray, a Blunt-Spined Brittle Star and... a Longsnout Seahorse!

This must have been the coolest dive ever with the best spots! Sorry Mark!
