Muiron Islands Dive 1

We were once again collected from Exmouth and headed off to the Bundegi Jetty to get to the dive boat.  We headed north for about an hour stopping intermittantly to take in the delights of breaching humpback whales in our path.

This also our first close encounter with a sea snake.  There were a fair few around.   Every few minutes they would head up to the surface for a breath and then dive down to the sandy floor to then head out under the overhangs in search of the next meal.
