Black water dive in Anilao  Philippines. If you rotate the pix 90 degrees  it s a flounder fish. But the marks on it s body make the fish look like a lady face  with long eyebrows.

message this message is importantHey Peter,

I saw you have quite a few shots from Bare island and it looks really good for small critters. I'm in Brisbane and thinking of making a trip down to Sydney. Can you recommend a dive company for Bare island or is it easiest to just hire tanks somewhere and jump in from the shore? What time of year are the port jacksons there? I really want to find the sydney Pygmy pipehorse!

Hey Richard
Bare Island is great for small critters, Dive companies around that area are Sydney Dive Academy 9331 0708 (there ok a little unorganised, Although they a the closest) Snorkel Inn 9588 1152 (seem nice but haven't done much with them) Abyss 9583 9662 (alittle further away but ressonably organised) It's an easy shore dive so you could just hire tanks & do your own thing. I haven't seen the pigmy seahorse's yet, although THEY! tell me that you can find them there (last report was they where on the south west corner at about 12 mtr) but I have hear there on east side as well?? PJ can be seen there all year round (there a heaps more during breed though, which is over... If you need I guide just drop me a line click here to email  more than happy to help you look for pigmy seahorse's

message Hey,

Thanks for the info. I will let you know if I do come down, i'm pretty sure I can find the pygmies (Positive thinking)! It'll probably be november sometime and shore diving seems a much easier option. Thanks again.
