First dive of the day on the boat of Alpha Divers. Descending on the center of wreck. Diving first around propellers and then to the bridge, pretty much of swimming! The bone lorry found!
Name of the site comes from amphitheatre-like natural formation on land. Wall bottom on max. aprox. 20m and top on aprox. 10m. One swim-through on dive route. Lots of sea grass. Large schools of Damselfish. One striped Grouper. Air temperature aprox. 30 C. Clear weather.
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.
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.
