We were good students. We did all the reading and answered all the review questions - mostly correctly. We met Gordon down at AquaVenture on Saturday and went through the process for getting a Nitrox fill and checking the mix in the tank. Then we did two dives - one at Cathedral and one at Koala. The pictures attached to this blog were really from our previous trip but since we didn't attach any before we'll do it now. No, we didn't take these pictures. Our divemaster did. We have an underwater housing for our camera so hopefully with some practice we'll get some of our own worth showing.
After the dives we reviewed our test questions over a San Miguel Light and Gordon declared us Nitrox certified. Since Gordon was going back to Manila we arranged to dive the next day with Abet, our divemaster from the last trip. Abet took us to Sepoc Wall and again to Cathedral. We fed the fish while Abet painstakingly searched for a pigmy seahorse in a sea fan. He didn't need to bother since those things are so small we wouldn't have seen it anyway. He never did find it. Maybe the seahorse got tired of people poking around looking for him and left. Or maybe it was so small Abet couldn't see it either.
The fish feeding brought around a couple of big, mean looking Trigger Fish among many others. You become very popular with the sea life when you have food in your hands. Last time I got bit by a big Angel Fish who thought my finger looked tasty. It didn't hurt but it left a mark. I don't know what kind of teeth the Trigger Fish have but they looked a lot meaner than the Angel Fish so I gave them what they wanted and kept my distance.
