For our second day of diving we went to Ras Mohammed National park.

we went diving today on Ras za'atar and our second dive will be made on Ras Ghozlani.

During our boattrip we spotted some dolphins swimming along the boat. It was a very good beginning of our day. 

Ras za'atar is big wall of coralls with a lot of different species. we saw a big Napoleon fish. almost at the end of the dive we saw a big turtle above us it was awesome to see the peacefull turtle swimming on the surface. During the safety stop there was a lot of little fish arround us, some of them where really curious and come really close.

After the boattrip to Ras Ghozlani we got in the water again. We had a great start when we got under the water we spotted almost directly a crocodilefish laying down in the sand.

There was a lot of little fish to see, we also spotted some lionfish and sometimes in the bleu there were groupers hunting for food.

After the dive we got a lunch on the boat. While we waited for some people who have there introduction dive, me and Karel were sitting on the platform of the boat, and had our feet in the water. When the introduction divers came out of the water we continued our boattrip back to the harbour (travco marina)

Arround 5.30pm we arrived back at the hotel and we watched the photo's on the computer. After that i took a shower and had diner.

After we had diner we went back to the room and we have washed out our dive equipment.

After a few drinks we went to bed.

It's said that Ras mohammed national park is the best diving site in red sea. But I didn't dive there when I was in Sharm El Sheikh this August. What a pity.
