Visibilty: 25m

Water Temp: ??c

Bottom Time: 40minutes

Max Depth: 35m

Details: The second day on Maafushi, the dive store took me out to 2 local dive sites. The first was Kandooma Tila. The guides weren’t exactly sure of the location of the wall, so after jumping in and dropping into 35m, then swimming against a strong current towards the wall 200m away, i convinced the guide to surface and head back to the boat. I didn’t want to get a hit in the maldives! Take two after a 20 minute surface interval and we had a very impressive dive. Loads of schooling fish and a few white-tipped reef sharks that stayed just far enough away to be out of focal range. A turtle munched on some coral just as i was about to go into deco at about 12m. I would have liked longer at this site.

Camera Details: Canon 60mm, 2 X YS-D1 Strobes
