Diving highlights this month included some very small critters and very large fish!

In the muck, we had tons of nudibranch, most notably at Bakalang and Apuri Bay including 4 different sightings of the psychedelic batwing slug. We tracked down a little hairy octopus at Pussy Galore and at Lothar’s Place a pair of ambon scorpionfish that have been moving around through the silt left over from rainy season.

Out in the Strait, we have had some nice big fish sightings with a school of scalloped hammerheads on the full moon and 2 hammerheads again on the new moon. We had many mola-mola sightings, lots of fun with dolphins and even a whale shark!
