New Discoveries

One of the things I like most in diving is going to familiar dive sites & discovering new, the joy & the excitement of discovery brings me back to being a newly qualified open water diver. As an instructor I spend most of my time watching my students so they remain safe & don’t always get the chance to fully see a dive site. Twins is a good example of this, is a beautiful site & idea for training & is very popular & I took the chance to go for a fun dive to see what I could find. There on one of the rocks where I do my safety stop was an amazing scorpionfish, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scorpaenidae one of my favourite fishes, I was told it was always there but never find it before. It was a like a new discovery only metres from where I hang out doing a safety stops. Now every time I go I point it out to my students so I can share it with them.
