Feb 4th – 11th 2017 - Alphonse Island Dive Centre was joined by veteran diver John Hall this week for some deep diving and a search for big fish. Fairly strong winds from the North counted out several of our dive sites, nevertheless with such an array of top spots all around the atoll we still made some excellent underwater quests.
With a sometimes powerful North-Westerly wind this week the dive team has been making the most out of the clear waters found in leeward sides of our islands. With visibility reaching beyond 40m and only being as low as 25m our divers has been able to spot all sorts of wonderful marine life.
