Second week diving continues at Ari atoll.

February 7th, 2009

Today we are doing only 2 dives as we have planned to cross the channel to south Ari atoll after the second dive.

Mulah Kandu; is a wide and long channel with a sandy bottom of 30 meter. Caves and overhangs start from the western side of the outer reef close to the channel corner. These caves and over hangs are filled with different colors of soft coral.

The coral growth gets better at the corner and near the edge of the channel. One main attraction is the large coral block at the corner in deeper water. The channel bottom is a resting ground for much different species of rays.

Second dive at Ambara Thila; an average Thila with an average fish life; eagle rays, napoleon, sting ray and turtle on the reef top.

We began crossing after the second dive. The surface condition was poor, rough sea and gusty wind.
