Manado, Lembeh - Diving with the Wonderpus and Flamboyant Cuttlefish at Tg Kareko

Site: Tanjung Kareko
Stats: 10.18am, 57 mins, 18.9m deep
Critters: Flamboyant cuttlefish, "regular" cuttlefish, and wonderpus octopus too! Mind-bogglingly good dive, my breath was taken away!

The most magnificent of dives, we saw two out of three of the "holy grails" of diving, the Flamboyant Cuttlefish and the Wonderpus octopus!

What a great start to the dive ... a rather large cuttlefish in all its colourful glory!
