Gobs of Gobies and Harlequin Ghost Pipefish: Rocky Gully & Dili Rock - Dec. 8

For the first dive, Shane picked a new site, a few kilometers West of Maubara, where there is a small path from the road next to a rock gully coming from the mountains down to the coast. The entry is a bit rocky but it was worth it to find a forest of black coral spiraling towards the surface with their resident gobies. The visibility was excellent and as we visited the pristine soft and hard corals, we were buzzed by a big mackerel and later, a 3 meter thresher shark. For dive two, we went to see if our friends the harlequin ghost pipefish were still at Dili Rock, and they were!!!
