Aquarium and Devil's Doorway, 1/16/18

The entire range from little: Pom Pom Crab, to big: Pilot Whales, showed up on the Tuesday morning dives.  Aquarium has long been a home for exotic creatures, many of which are very small and live on the rock faces or in the rubble.  Often we will overturn rocks on the bottom to let the Yellow Tail Corises find treats.  They love it and swarm around you when you hover just off the rubble.

Today Becca found this Pom Pom Crab under a rock.

Other locals were also easy to find, such as Whitemouth Eels, Commersons Frogfish, Dragon Wrasse and Octopus.

Then on to Pawai, where we dive a lot during the winter because it is a series of moorings sheltered from the NW swell.
