The Festival Of Lights At Pulau Hantu.....
First dive, the Southern Jetty. After we made our descent, the first thing that came to my mind is "Wow!...but wait a minute, I am at Hantu right? Not Tioman...but why is the vis looks like I am in Tioman?"....Yes, the vis is about 8m at the depth of 15m and it was still very bright!!!! So can you imagine if it is bright sunny day without the haze? And why am I so surprise is because, usually it is already quite dim at the depth of 12m for my past dive trips at Hantu. And the second dive at the Northern Jetty was also with a good vis of about 4-5m at the depth of 9m. Could it be because today is the Festival of Lights?
Look at the VIS!!! So Good!!!
In additional to the good vis, we saw a lot of stuffs too!
First the Nudibranchs:
The big white one with yellow rhinophores is a phyllidia sp. Of course, there's the Blue Dragon Nudibranch. The one that has a batik pattern body with orange projections is bornella anguilla (1st time seeing it!). There's a lot of the tambja sp (yellow with blue rhinophores and gills one) and cuthona sibogae (purple body and yellow projections) today too. I then saw the dermatobranchus sp (white body with some brown dots and brown rhinophores) again. And I finally got a pic of a small jorunna funebris (White with black polka-dots)
Then it's Flatworms Galore!:
Of course, with such good vis, who can miss out the fishes!
There's the giant goby and two Six-banded Anglefish!
Last but not least, the Icon Seastar.
