Dear adventurous souls of the world,
What an amazing trip we just had! Full of sunny, beautiful days at Cocos island – and the diving… oh, what diving!
Hammerheads at depths of 650ft/200m, a cave full of jellynose fish at 780ft/240m, huge king crabs and an impossibly delicate octopus at 620ft/190m. There is simply so much to see at these depths!
Every dive on the DeepSee submarine is a new adventure – you just never know what to expect. On one of our deep dives at “The Wall” we encountered a Phacellophora camtschatica jellyfish, commonly known as the “fried egg jellyfish,” about one meter wide and swimming gracefully in the middle of the ocean. We haven’t seen this type of jellyfish for about four years, so we were very happy to see it again around here.
We were very happy to see also some old friends living on this rock formation at 540ft/165m, the frogfish and the moray eel.
We had some nice “shallow” water dives too, only to about 300ft/90m, visiting the DeepSee dive site we call Everest – which is full of life and activity. We saw some yellow fin tunas hunting there, which was fantastic!
We feel so fortunate to have seen all of this while sitting behind the acrylic dome of our yellow submarine. Thanks to all of the great people we met last trip aboard the Argo, who shared your experiences with us. We wouldn’t be here without you guys.
