    It's just a matter of time before the surface of the water turns to rock. Wouldn't that be a surprise returning from depth?

    Hey Steve, Great to see a fellow Canadian on SB. Perhaps you'll consider joining the Canadian Divers social group.

    It's erupting about every hour at the moment and you can sometimes see rocks the size of fridges falling into the water. The eruption in the photo happened just as we surfaced so the height of the plume is maybe 20 to 30 seconds after the eruption.
    I will post a link to Picasa with more shots from our trip there 2 weeks ago for anyone interested.

    Steve, I used to live in Tasmania and was getting to a stage where I thought I was old enough to need a dry suit, but then I was offered a position in Indonesia. It was far cheaper to buy the 1mm wet suit needed here, mainly to stop the stingers. Lifes tough :)
