Mucky Pirates Update





Once again s couple of interesting shots from your Mucky Pirate Captain.

Tiny walnut sizes crab was cool, scorpionfish crawling amongst the weed and a miniscule nudibranch on the weed.

Mucky Pirate Nights








Mucking around in the dark, always fun.

Me, me camera and Robin (guest pirate) headed out into the dusk to watch the change of shifts in Mucky Pirates Bay, Pemuteran. Armed with our spanky new UK C4 eLED's we headed out to explore the murky depths right in front of Sea Rovers home port.



Again, this place is proving to be full of hidden surprises.

Pipeworms, pipefish, shrimps, crabs, seaslugs, cuttlefish, scorpionfish, wasp fish and more.

Will definately be doing more of these.

(Note: highly recommend these touches and no we don't get sponsorship (not that we wouldn't object if they gave us some ;-). Went the whole dive on half power as they were just too bright otherwise)

Teeny Weeny Pipefish


Once again Mucky Pirates Bay provides.....

This tiny robust ghost pipefish must be less than 2.5cm.

Sorry the photo isn't in focus on the pipefish, but the bugger was so small and wouldn't stay still long enough for the camera to focus.
