Field Notes From Bandos in the Maldives – December 2019

Another visit to our beloved Bandos. Was this our last visit? (We always think that)

It had been my longest interval between dives since we began diving – a whole year. It bothered me that I felt “unsettled” on 3/4 of the dives – I couldn’t put my finger on it.

On this trip, I was able to capture some decent Eagle Ray images – something that had eluded me up to that point.

Though we’d seen better underwater conditions on previous visits, it was good to get back in water and re-visit Banana Reef, Maagiri Rock and the wreck of the Victory.

At Stingray City, we saw a Guitar Shark again – was it the same specimen we’d seen before? Above the waterline, we enjoyed a visit to Male, and captured some images from the fish and fruit market. – JC
