Diving at Perhentian Island- 4~6/June/2011

Post Number:#1  Postby vash_h » Tue Jun 07, 2011 9:24 am

hey guys.. just got back from a wonderful dive at Bubbles DC at Perhentian Island.

AND BEST OF ALL, i even chased after a juvenile black tip reef shark on one of my many snorkeling trips  :D

ALSO, witnessed a green turtle laying eggs! it was around 7am, so was able to take many photo and videos without usage of flash.

i will upload the videos and photo of the turtle later.. still uploading to youtube..

here's the photos of my dive trips..

Actually, the barge is actually a 'barge' that is shipping construction materials for construction for a resort in perhentian. It sank due to bad weather and there r still missing person from this incident.

Not many resorts know this location. Its considered deep dive, around 26meters. Very nice 'garden' and lots of fish to see.. And lots of bamboo/nurse sharks (I could never differentiate the 2).  Bubbles dc is d first to find d barge, and they kept it silent. Other operators is still looking for it. Rumours say another resort found it as well..

Current is moderate in d mornings, and non-accessible noon onwards. current will b too strong. Its at the centre tween perhentian besae and redang, or at least thtswhat my gps says..

Thank you for the explanation vash_h. So I guess that this dive spot is still not being known/discovered by some divers/dive centre. And your #14 photos of a group of shark is great ! :)

Thanks. Thats y we love going there. We are always d only group going there, so lots to see. Once we went d'lagoon, with almost nothing to see. Even d anemone fish is scarce. Too many divers on tht day. At least 4boats full of divers..
