Manchones Reef

July 30, 2015

The second dive of the morning was on Manchones Reef. A vibrant reef close by the MUSA (Museo Subacuático de Arte). As the previous dive on MUSA was pretty shallow we had a short surface interval before promptly jumping back in the ocean.

Machones is in great condition. It's part of the National Marine Park and it shows. Plenty of coral and sealife to see as you drift the reef. I found a particularly fiesty lobster that was well out of its den.

The reef has abundant schools of fish. It's always fun to stop moving as much as possible, slow down your breathing, and drift into a school.

 

We had plenty of air and no decompression limit time at the end of the dive. I couldn't resist playing around for a bit before we surfaced.
