Muiron Islands....or not

Up at 6.15 this morning for 3 dives on the Muiron Islands, or so we thought. Whilst waiting outside the camp one of the other divers mentioned that due to the weather we wouldn't be diving the Muiron Islands, instead we'd be diving somewhere on the west coast.
We didn't mind that much since we actually wanted to dive Ningaloo Reef today anyway but the company weren't running a trip out there.
The journey out was a little sloppy and almost half the 20 people onboard were puking over the side at some point or other, there were a couple that didn't move away from the back of the boat for most of the 7 hours we were out. Since we'd been out the day before and knew exactly how choppy it would be so we purchased some homeopathic tablets....did they work, I don't think so. After the first dive they brought around some fresh ginger which did do the trick for a while, however the nausea soon returned.
Even snorkelling with another Whale Shark didn't ease the feeling, it was only when I had a little snooze that I began to feel better. By the time I'd fully recovered from my nap the boat was inside the reef and in calmer seas.
I'm a little disappointed with the dive sites from today, but I think that they didn't have a choice due to the swells and slight current. Maybe we'll find something better further down the coast.
