In this amazing video taken of a scuba diver taunting a Moray Eel underwater, we can see that a Moray Eel is indeed a fairly powerful creature, not to be reckoned with.
Moray Eel Agression
Moray Eels are not aggressive creatures. On the contrary, they are shy, timid animals that will usually cower into their holes when a scuba diver approaches them. However, if you find one that is not timid, you should not try to touch the moray eel. As you can see in this Moray Eel Video, a Moray Eel has strong teeth and can cause serious damage.
After a week of having no guests, the Black Pearl embarked with 14 divers yesterday and after the orientation night dive at Himmafushi lagoon, all divers were readied and approved for the first dive tomorrow at 06:30.
For the first dive we went to Nassimo Thila, and after that, we moved to south Male’ atoll to the dive site Embudhu Express. At Emdudhu Express the current was mild which led to a poor fish life plus the usual long drift.
The second dive was to Kuda Giri Wreck which was an enjoyable dive, and during the dive the Black Pearl moved to Guraidhoo Region for final anchorage.
Third dive of the day was at Lhosfushi Kandu the tiny channel south of Guraidhoo Island. Diving began from the southern corner. We then crossed the sandy shallow channel and ended up at the northern corner of Guraidhoo Kandu. We saw a school of Masked Banner fish, in the clearing of blue water, away from the reef. We were able to catch a glimpse of a few white tip reef sharks and different species of moray eels including a honeycomb moray.
