9&10/9/12 GBR trip: September cruise to the Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef / MASA
I am catching up reporting about previous dive trips. Here on in September, the air and water temperatures are slightly going up.

We congratulated to a new PADI Openwater Diver and some introductory divers tried multiple dives during this trip.
PADIオープンウォーターダイバー合格おめでとう!

We spotted dolphins on the way to go to the reef. Under water, there were many kind of idols like Green Seaturtle, Hawksbill Turtle, Whitetip Reefshark, Maori Wrasse, Bumphead Parrrotfish, Giant Trevally, Bluespotted Stingray, 5 Anemonefish varieties and Painted Spiny Lobster.

We found many other macro fish which are not common in the Great Barrier Reef, and also enjoyed over 40m visibility and great wall diving. As the reefs were very isolated, we only saw another boat (maybe a tuna trolling boat) during this cruise.
