Diving around the top edge of the wall. Never seen octopus here before, but this time saw three of them! Last one even posed nicely to the camera. I quess it's better to stay shallow instead of going down to 30m along the wall. Checked also the entrance to cave.
Another great dive at Zenobia! To the dive site on the boat from the old Larnaca fishing harbour. Mooring to the rear end of the wreck and descending straight to propellers. Diving past the lorries and back from the life boat, remembering to feed the breams with leftover toast from breakfast.
Second dive of the day at Grand Island. This tme to Turbo Tunnels, a maze of swim-throughs, canyons and caverns.
The name of the site is said to come from one of the swim-through caverns where you can in suitable conditions come out from the top of it like from pistol's mouth. Mostly rocky bottom, lots of swim-throughs. Some sandy areas. Large areas of sea grass. Air temperature aprox. +30 C, windy and a bit cloudy. Little of dwelling on surface, in deeper water almost still.
