Dive 207: Little Brother, Red Sea (Egypt)

Dive time: 00:58:00
Max depth: 39.6 metres
Temperature: 27 C
Visibility: 25 metres
Buddy: Leena
Surface interval 14:36:00
Mix: EAN 26 (MOD 42.2 metres – 1.4ppO2)

The Zodiacs dropped us at the south western tip of the island where there is a cleaning station plateau at around 35-40 metres. Apparently this is a good site to see big things, and as soon as we descended we spotted a broad grey reef shark (when we got back, another group apparently saw a massive manta ray and a couple of hammerheads – damn!).

The rest of the dive was pretty easy, cruising along the wall on the northern side of Little Brother back up to around 10 metres and checking out all the beautiful corals and fans, lots of colourful reef fish, predatory cornet fish, schools of large black and white snapper, a few lone barracuda, and then back onto the boat.
