We are now back in Cairns from PNG and on the way home tomorrow.
The Bizmark cruise we just did would rate up there with one of the best cruises we have done on True North as it had everything.
On the first dive yesterday we found one of the coolest looking sea anemones I have ever seen, but I had the wrong lens on to capture it properly, so after a short break headed back out for a 20 minute dive just on that anemone site.
Well worth it as I have already sold one of these now!
Coupled to that on the way back from the dive we heard that one of the guests had hooked a sail fish and we were cruising right by them.
I managed to get video of the final stages of the catch and also a few shots with the volcano in the background. That made 2 good size sail fish hooked for the trip and released and also one Marlin. Not to mention the big eye tuna, wahoo, mackerel and GT’s that were landed!
As if that wasn’t enough, after lunch I just swam to shore and found one of the best snorkelling spots I have ever seen, just at the back of the True North!
Sadly it is the last day of the True North adventures in Cendrawasih Bay. Everyone is still somewhat in a state of shock as to how simply fantastic the cruise has been and the various experiences we had on board.
We did 2 dives today and both were exceptional with a huge array of sea life to behold with excellent viability.
If you ask Flemming Bo Jensen about yesterday he would have said it would have been hard to beat the afternoon of swimming with the seals, but today Rottnest turned it on again.
With a strong North East wind blowing this morning, we left the North side of the island for picturesque Parker Point on the Southern side of the island. I shot off for a quick surf at Stricklands and then after lunch we loaded up the underwater housing, kindly loaned by my buddy Glenn Murray, and set off for the coral gardens at Parker Point.
The top image is of a wave breaking over me, which I simply called……’Duck’!
The other is a simple image featuring some colourful seaweed against a mirror calm surface.
The day at Parker Point was picture perfect and the bay was totally loaded with heaps of boats and people enjoying the tranquility of the bay.
