St. Toma (Snake island)

   Bulgaria  Black Sea
Cape "St. Toma" is located about 15 km to the south from the town of Sozopol. Opposite it, about 400 meters from the shore, there is a small island called "St. Toma", also known as “The Snake Island”. The botanist Buresh planted a collection of cactuses on the island with an area of 3 decares in the twenties of the last century. Today, the cactuses have taken over the whole area of the island and perhaps this is why it has been proclaimed a natural reserve. Beautiful cliffs are located in the water around the island, rich of underwater wild live. The depth is from 4 to 12 meters.

Stone forest, Sozopol

   Bulgaria  Black Sea
In the strait between the northern part of Sozopol and the "St. Ivan" Island, at a depth between 18-20 meters, the bottom is sandy and leveled. Suddenly, gloomy stony branches loom before the underwater divers, with a diameter of 4 - 5 meters. There are hundreds of them and impart the strange feeling of being in an apocalyptic ancient wood. This is really a petrified forest, which sank 70 millions years ago under the Black Sea waters.

Scientists’ researches have determined the trees species to be swamp cedar. A swamp existed here 70 million years ago, not far from the shore. It seems that due to a great geological cataclysm, the sea abruptly raised its level with about 20 meters. It is supposed that the water did not contain oxygen and this led to petrifaction and not to decomposition of the ancient forest.

The underwater tour in the forest among the stone tree trunks is an unforgettable and exciting experience for every underwater diver. Pleasant finds from all historical ages are quite possible here – ancient anchors, amphorae, pottery ware and others. It is supposed that on entering the harbor bay of Sozopol, sailors used to throw away all unnecessary and damaged pottery in the sea.

   Bulgaria  Black Sea
A Turkish cargo steamship. Launched in 1888. Displacement 330 GRT. On 23.05.1942, while traveling from Burgas to Istanbul, it was unsuccessfully attacked with two torpedoes by the Soviet Sht-205 submarine, not far from Tsarevo. Fearing a repeat attack, the captain of Sefak turned ashore and dropped anchor. The ship’s fate was decided: shooting now at a stationary target, Suhomlinov, the submarine captain, sent the steamship to the bottom with the next two torpedoes. All nine crew members saved themselves.
Today the ship is found about 50 meters from the shore, at a depth of 10-16 meters. Discernible is a part of the stern with the screw and three-meter helm, as well as a multitude of debris over some hundred meters area. Part of the cargo comprising sanitary faience and tiles inscribed "Made in Hungary" is scattered over the bottom.
Among the fragments one can see a part of the torpedo that probably hit the ship in the middle. The Sefak is about 50 meters long, it lies with the bow pointing out to sea.

The wreckage is lying with the stern to the shore at a distance of some 30 meters from the land. Certain items of cargo can be discerned such as the steam boilers, parts of the deck, a few pipes and rails. The depth is between 18 and 24 meters. Parts of the ship are scattered over an area of around one hundred meters.

Chinese Hat Island, Galapagos Islands

   Ecuador  Pacific
The Galapagos Islands are the only place on Earth that you can swim with penguins in relatively warm water. We were snorkeling near the island named Chinese Hat, from the liveaboard Flamingo I (Ecoventura).
A flock of about 6-10 friendly penguins swam with us for about 20 minutes. They checked out our cameras, flippers (see photo), and nibbled gently at our wetsuits. The bottom was lava rock covered with kelp with marine iguanas were feeding on the kelp. Water temperatures were in the low 70's in May.
