Details: Paradise 1 is right near the Scuba Junkie Jetty so it was a 30 second boat trip, but it had plenty of great muck creatures. The site was very busy with probably 20 divers on it. We were ahead of most the divers and my guide found a frogfish which he pointed out to me excitedly. Although there are lots of frogfish around Mabul, this was apparently one of the more tricky species to find. I got a few shots off and then the ‘mob’ decended on the frogfish and people took it in turns ‘trying’ to make out an animal out of the nondescript mass. I waited patiently and got back for another couple of shots. It was in a tough position to light properly, but i managed a couple of shots that you can recognise the face if you look hard enough. The rest of the dive was spent with nudibranchs and turtles.
