This blog contains photos, mainly taken during diving around Perth and other parts of Western Australia, with occasional other locations thrown in. This header photograph was taken during a trip to Sipadan Island off the coast of Borneo. It shows a Grey Reef Shark disappearing into the gloom, which drops to around 600 metres deep - I was at around 30 metres!!

Turtles at Sipadan
Turtles are found all around the Island of Sipadan and as it is a protected area, they are unperturbed by divers around them all the time. They can be found resting on the reef, only surfacing for an occasional breath before resuming their rest. They fearlessly swim close to divers and often brush past to get to a favourite resting spot.
