    Did you hear anything about Dive Garage moving to Al Quoz?

    Mmm no but I have most dive gear and therefore not following any updates.
    I did purchase a sleeveless dive suit with hoodie but that was online.

    Does their moving change dynamics?

    Well it makes it about 20km less for me to drive there for starters. Where they are at the moment in DIP is just prohibitive to pop in and see what they've got is stock.

    Al Boom on the other hand is about a two minute drive from my house. Great for getting my Nitrox fills, but their gear choice is as exciting as watching your dive gear dry.

    Pretty lucky with those two in Dubai

    In Abu Dhabi, every dive shop other than gulf marine was forced to close and gulf marine has barely has anything

    C'est la vie

    Fortunate to have experienced an alligator fish hunting prey today

    :)

    No diving last Friday off Fujairah as the coasties stopped all boats going out :(

    Fortunately I received the message before I left Dubai so no wasted journey and I went back to bed :)

    Back to Fujairah with Barracuda today. CG called a three mile limit, but the weather was fairly quiet, no wind but a reasonable swell that reduced the speed of the boat to Deep Reef.

    Couple of seahorses spotted as well as sea snakes

    On ascent I was suddenly an attraction for a group of Pomfret that swam around me until I left my safety stop

    The second dive was on a new site "Barracuda Park" which is a group of old boats and jet skis sunk just over a month ago.

    Vis was barely 2m but there is some small corals taking root. I spent most of my dive orientating myself and tried to draw a map on my wetnotes. Gonna take another dive at least to finalise the map. We are hopeful that we'll see some nudis on here soon.

    Found a small hawksbill turtle that had too many barnacles on it plus the shell edging looked pretty badly broken around the back area. There's a shoal of small blue lined snapper swimming around as well as a couple of batfish.
