During these few days I found that swimming to the sea before 8AM pays off. Even on Friday, I was the first guy in the sea.
That white thing on the horizon is the famous underwater observatory.( Read more... )
There are many aquariums with sea turtles, sharks, rays, exotic fish, a poor octopus, etc there. The main attraction however are not the aquariums but a big underwater observatory. Their web site states
that it is the oldest underwater onbservatory, and the windows are submerged to 6 meters. When I was taking the stairs down I had a feeling that the real depth is just 3 meters.
The views there are very good.( Read more... )
So I obviously wondered how it would look from outside? The only way to find out is to get there by the sea. One has to buy a pass to the nature reserve beach and swim 500 meters from there, or swim a kilometer from a public beach. I have chosen a cheaper option :)
That is how it looks from the sea:
Nothing too special as a coral, but could be a nice wreck :) When diving there, I felt like the depth was only about 3-4 meters.
Now I see how the fish feels like when it is being watched and photographed through the windows:( Read more... )
That lady with a white smartphone must have taken couple of pictures of me and fish.
The corals around are well nurtured. ( Read more... )
The bubbles on the pictures above are coming from the divers, who are taking care of the reef.( Read more... )
And yes, these guys must release the octopus or at least get him a bigger cage!!!
