    I did HMAS Brisbane with Sunreef Divers a few years ago and highly recommend them.

    Although it was early December, water temps were 21C and I shivered in a rented 5mm.

    Well 23C from surface to bottom, well and truly in drysuit season :D

    The nudis seem to have disappeared over the past few weeks, but they are back with a bang this weekend on Car Cemetery 2 off Fujairah and on Inchcape 2 up at Khorfakkan.

    This was the only nudi I found two weeks ago on Inchcape 10

    Eubranchus sp.

    LOL. I dived the HMAS Brisbane (1 Feb 20) and it very much reminded me of Inchcape 1 in poor visibility! We had about 5 m visibility and were the only boat on the wreck. :cheers:
