The Sisters

February 24, 2024

We left a jetty in KaikĊura in the morning to head out to our first dive site of the day.

It was a stunning morning and we were treated to dolphins racing alongside and in front of the boat as we made our way towards the site.

The Sisters dive site is marked by these rocks sticking out of the surface of the water.

It's a very cool dive site where you descend down a wall on one side of the rocks and then ascend back up while making your way between the rocks.

Lots of great wildlife. I had to borrow this great pic from my buddy, Sophie, of a hermit crab sitting in a sponge with a sea spider on the edge of it. Just a great scene.

Because the boat couldn't stay close to the rocks, one of the group had to deploy a surface marker buoy.

During our ascent, Sophie took some pics at our three-minute safety stop. I'm the one with the black mask.
