Eel’s Garden

The Micronesian Dive Shop put on a great lunch for us between dives complete with sushi. For the second dive of the day, we made a short boat ride from Shark Pit to Eel’s Garden. It is named that for the Sand Needles which are eels living in the sand swaying in the tide like blades of grass. I also saw a small morea eel hiding in a coral. I saw a sea slug, many trigger fish, and angel fish. This was my deeped dive ever going down to 120′ for the first time although most of our time was spent at the 40′ level.

On the boat ride home, we had a pod of dolphin escort our boat. By then it was getting too dark in the evening for the picture to come out very well.
