But before this one we jumped at Koh Bon, some groups in the Ridge and some in the Pinnacle (Aka Hin Luang), where we had one of the surprises of the Season, 3 Massive Marble Rays (2 males and 1 females) in what looks totally like a mating dance. We stayed 15 minutes in the deep rocks next to this guys (few times their tails were passing few centimeters above our heads) watching their dance and being unnotice, sure they had another things in mind.

The day before was Richelieu Rock day, with a first one at The dome with the stronger current of this season so far, like a river!!!!, luckily the lines made our life easier to go down and find shelter among the granite boulders. Crazy actions and 2 White Tip Reef Sharks hunting in the madness created in the expose side of the rock.

Richelieu Rock gave us the expected for all, Seahorses, Ghotpipefishes, Harlequin Shrimps, Pipefishes, a new baby Seamoth, Bumblebee Shrimp, Ribbon Eel, Cuttlefishes, Octopuses, Devil Scorpionfishes and the action around the rock in Sunset time. Sure bet, never fails!!!!!
