From small town in the mountains to bigger town by the sea, and the chance to blow a few bubbles.
Snuck into an 50m long grotto with a few fish about, along the walls of both Tino and Tinito islands there were gorgonian fans to admire and whilst not the size or variety we are used to seeing over our side of the world, still worth a captains.
Speaking of captains... Capitano Simone runs a tight ship where everything is organised and nothing is a problem. Anne and two other non divers were entertained by Simone and swimming in the azure blue water is no real hardship ~ even if it was a little brisk.
Turns out Simone is a dab hand in the kitchen so when it came to providing lunch there was a veritable feast including hot pasta for lunch... the remains of which Simone is finishing off before dishes time.
Plenty of space on board for gear... and where is everyone you ask...?
A day out diving runs a little differently over here. No minimal surface interval approach to be found. Instead sunbathing is the way to de-gas. Everyone bar Anne and myself and one or two crew are on the top deck catching some rays... before and after each dive.
