ok i know some you guys/gals have whipped out yr smartphones and calculated, hmm 20 divers....7ft across...wah all so slim ar? i am thinking not all organisers as power as raffidi!!

so if there is a smaller group they can still use this banner and it will be easier to hold? comments?

Mari membakar semangat!
Read a Scuba Junkie fb status this morning. They dived a new dive site in Siamil yesterday and found 4 pygmy seahorses, 9 ghost pipefishes and 4 frog fishes.

I vote Si Amil as one of must dive place for the Mass Dive :-)

Would love to do but you can only do Siamil Island only if you put up a night on Mabul as it's too far from Semporna.

folks

it just occurred to me that if we have to go out and be on the boat for 2 dives each time, if there are cameras on board...there are no facility to rinse our cameras on board the dive boat. at least that was what happened last time.

so be prepared....

Tell you what, I'll mail SJ requesting for a big pail of fresh water for the purpose of rinsing stuff and if the say no, we can share and buy a pail for the trip. What say you? Oh......and it's 3 boat dives per trip/day.

as usual, you are the man! yes we wait for your email response or else we get one of those white styrofoam boxes for keeping fish chilled. should be easy to get in semporna.

hope all parties can resolve their case peacefully before we get there. may those have lost their lives have peace.
