January 7, 2005: Caribbean Explorer II

A D2D New Years 2005: Saba - St. Kitts dive
"Ladder Labrynth (Saba)" - "Tent Wall (Saba)"

Last day of diving for the trip. We did a predawn dive ...
Diving aboard the CEXII:
  • Directions from Tampa: Talk to Ultimate Dive Travel at
  • Conditions on the day of my visit: Sunny.

  • Personal Notes: The predawn dive was at Ladder Labrynth, where I took some photos of a strange creature that, it turns out, is a travelling companion of one of my D2D buddies.

    Tent Wall became out last site of the trip. It's a nice spot, and given enough air, you can actually see part of Tent Reef while you're there.

    Someone claimed to have seen a hammerhead shark on that last dive - but with no picture and no one else seeing it, we have to take her at her word.


Ladder Labrynth (Saba)
Azure Vase Sponges are usually not shaped so - perfectly.
I am pretty sure this is a Star Eye Hermit Crab.
Here is Helga. There is a long story about Helga, which resulted in me offering to take pictures of her in random places. In this shot, she found a nice little cubby in some sponges.
She really liked how these kinds of sponges formed a little throne of sorts.
This Nurse Shark allowed me to get quite close - not that I was in any rush to do so. Seeing as it was getting a little dark, I needed to get close enough for the lights to pick up the shark. Even with that, I had to brighten it a bit.
Tent Wall (Saba)
A diver and the sun.
This is some kind of blenny.
Another shot of the Red Lipped Blenny, though not quite as sharp as the previous one.
