This was the last dive of the trip, and a great conclusion! The dive was quite easy, though it could have been tricky. We were in the middle of current city. The site is basically a submerged rock in the middle of the current. We entered at the time it slowed down, and was about to reverse, so minimum current. Basically keep an eye out for what the fish are doing. They will show where the current is coming from (they prefer to be on the high side of a reef, facing the current.) The site is awesome. Soo many fish! It's like an aquarium, but better, much better! Fish everywhere you looked, all around you, basically obscuring your vision! I spotted a white tip sleeping on the bottom after Akim signaled something behind a rock. I approached it very slowly. The closer I got the slower I was and the slower I breathed. I took a shot which might have woken it up as it seemed to look up and I could shot of two more frames before it swam away. There was a massive school of barracuda patrolling. There was too much to see and photograph so I tried filming a bit. After the dive we went to see the Komodo nature reserve where they have the dragons roaming around. The walk was a bit disappointing actually. Although the dragons walk around freely, and we did see quite a few lounging around the kitchen, we spotted only one more female guarding her eggs, and a few monkeys in the field. Not exciting, especially compared to seeing them at the beach at cannibal rock. In the evening the crew made us an amazing barbeque on the beach. We were assured they would only do that if they got along well with the group. I'm glad they felt we considered them part of the group, because they put a lot of effort in the barbeque. They brought down sofas from the boat. They played music and we all danced, sang, drank and ate. Absolutely an amazing day to conclude an amazing trip!

Siaba Kecil was a killer dive. Roy was shattered from the drift dives in the recent days, and I guess it was a good thing he didn't join, as this was THE BOMB!!!! O-MY-GOD, that was an absolute killer drift dive! Photographically not great and some thermoclines between 24 and 27 degC. This drift was fast, and I mean REAL fast! Probably the strongest drift dive we had this trip. We could see it from the cruise towards the dive site after this one, which showed currents exceeding 8 knots! (not this dive though). The beginning had some updrafts pulling us from 16 to 8 meters deep. Several times I had to hook in to stay close to the group. Really I probably should have stuck closer to the reef. I actually didn't bring a hook on this dive, but I think it would have been fruitless as there was mostly loose rubble on the bottom, nothing to firmly hook in. I Brought my pointer stick and managed to slam it into the ground about 3/4 of the way. The current was so strong that it actually bend my stick! On the right of me Jan grabbed hold of a huge boulder... which then subsequently flipped over and started tumbling down the current! This was one of those scenes from a cartoon, like Tom and Jerry, you know, where you see the claws in the ground and leaving claw marks streaking across the floor as the cat gets dragged away. That was the scene. Following the current we saw a manta about 20 meters away, you know as graceful and smooth as they can be... NOT!!!!!!! This one was flaunting and fluttering, and if it could pant, I would have sworn it was panting, trying to fight the current. It was actually quite funny to watch! At the end of the dive we spotted another Manta just turning its ass to us and disappearing in the blue, not too graceful. I don't think I took any pics this dive, but it certainly was a worthwhile experience!

The temperature of the water dropped further to 22degC, so it was unpleasant in just a shorty. I think I left my balls after having them frozen off... This was a night dive at the same location as the previous dive. We saw pretty much the same creatures and critters except for the picturesque. Also spotted the Malibe which appeared to be sleeping.
