Second dive of the the day from Cydive I after a good break in Agios Georgios fishing harbour. Only couple of minutes boat ride to the dive site on the northern side of Geronisos island. A bit more fish on this one. Entrance to a cavern said to be full of shrimps in 30m, but couldn't go in because the first ones to enter where coming out at the same time. Used a lot of air for some reason, maybe due to a lot of finning during this and previous dive. No-deco limit also came too near, so I started surfacing earlier and missed a couple of swimtroughs.
With a Cydive I boat from Agios Georgios fishing harbour to a dive northern Lara Bay hoping to see a turtle. No luck this time, didn't see much fish either. Overhangs and swim-throughs were also promised, but didn't see any. In conclusion not much more than a midwater swim trying to keep in the divemaster's not very slow pace. Actually we did loose the rest of the group with two buddy pairs and a divemaster who obviously were slower. 20 minutes drive in back of the 4WD from Kato Paphos to Agios Georgios in wetsuits(!) wasn't my idea of fun either.
Very nice new stairs for easy access. Started to dive through the lake but had to turn back when got deeper, too cold without gloves... Ended up diving back and forth along small ridge near shore.
Second dive of the day at Grand Island. This tme to Turbo Tunnels, a maze of swim-throughs, canyons and caverns.
