It was at Chimneys where beautiful fish swam freely and sightings of school of barracudas which was found at 18ft below. The second and third dive were centralised at Kansas; vibrant colours of fish were seen, sweetlips, Moray eels , unicorn fish and many more.

The last day was a slow and steady day so we agreed on one diving location which was Nigali passage.
