4th February 2006 : Pulau Hantu

This was my third time to Pulau Hantu. But it is a dive site that I will never get tired of because of so many thing that she offers. The only thing that you need to do is to go slow.

The vis was about 3m. There was a group of students doing their basic open water. Someone from our boat joked that they get to do one of their Advanced course skill as well for it is always a night dive everytime you dive in Hantu.

Nudibranchs : The blue dragon nudibranch, phyllidia nudibranchs (the white was about 8cm long and 3cm wide) and a pair of yellow coloured nudibranchs (about 1.5cm with blue rhinophores and gills).

Flatworms : Saw two kinds but only this photo is clear.

Crinoids : The first one was hiding under a rock and the white one was very small and out in the open.

Icon Sea Star.

Sea Urchin.

Here's the resident Hawksbill turtle having it lunch.

And last but not least, the beautiful Sea Fan, Sea Whip and of course, our very own Nemo(False Clownfish).
