  1. Wonderful! May I ask how deep this dive was? Posted 3 years ago
  2. Hi fchristant, I had not answered because I was on holidays for a week. The maximum depth on that dive was 21.3 m and the average depth for the total duration was 15 m. I don't remember at which point I saw the nudi but it may have been between these depths :-) Posted 3 years ago
