End of a Great Diving Season

Diving season has ended here in Gorontalo until mid October. Waves on alternate days are already 2 meters. On our last day of diving, we dove the deep wreck which went down in 1942. Visibility was an amazing 25 meters. The wreck itself is 50 meters long, so even in great vis the entire wreck cannot be seen. The deepest third of the wreck (the bow) collapsed and slid below 50 meters a couple of years ago. In the clear deep water this entire portion was clearly visible. In one place plumes of Foxtail tunicates grow undisturbed. Let’s hope they are still there when Miguel’s Diving resumes operations in October. Thanks to everyone who made this past season so successful!
