31 December: Last dive of the year
Dive 147:Koh Pu (Off Kata Beach)
Max Depth: 12.5m ; Bottom time: 52 min
Water Temp: 28c; Visibility: 5-10m
Comments: I spent my last minutes underwater in 2008 with my fav diver, Sophiya aka "Aqua Girl." Condition definitely was not ideal at Koh Pu, with surges & low viz due to plankton. We spotted quite few surprises, including this rare Nudibranch (see photo) that I'm yet to identify, squat cleaner shrimps, Maldivian Sea Snails, cuttlefish etc. With my second dive here in December, and finding 3 different nudibranches that I have never seen, I am so looking forward to make this small island dive site as our regular weekly excursion.
