Big Daddy Divers

Big Daddy Divers trip May 18-28, 2019
This trip was awesome and we had it all - fabulous weather, great dives, fun people and interesting village visits. This must be the time of year when the octopus are feeling frisky and we saw several octopus couples getting intimate! We were also lucky enough to see a few cuttlefish still laying their eggs! We were treated to both Denise and Bargibant’s pygmy seahorse, robust ghost pipefish, reef top pipefish, Schitz’s pipefish plus a regular sized yellow seahorse! Add to this schooling barracudas, a few sharks, turtles, crocodile fish, WW2 wrecks, caves, cuts, vertical tunnels and stunning coral reefs and you get a very special trip!
Thank you to Tina, Oli and all of the Bilikiki crew for looking after us both in and out of the water. Also a very big thank you to the Big Daddy Divers for joining us onboard and making it such a fun trip, we hope to dive with you all again soon!
Lots of photos and video to come!
