Black Head

January 21, 2024

Making our way back from the Mikhail Lermontov, the second dive of the day was at Black Head. The site turned out to be home to a handful of carpet sharks. I found the first one sleeping under some kelp.

The next one was swimming towards me and I only got a shot as it passed by.

Another one was asleep with its head under a rock.

Yet another one was asleep with a variable triplefin sitting on its head.

I even found a nice clown nudibranch and a marblefish.
