    Sharks in the Caves at Five Graves

    Oct. 21, 2007 (6923 views)

    I have dived at Five Graves and poked around inside all of the caves on many occasions without seeing a single shark. But I can't remember a dive that I saw as many sharks as I did there today. There seemed to be one in every cave that Tau and I entered. The above photo taken in the "Toilet Bowl" cave tells the story.

    I never was any good at spotting octopus. I usually have to rely on my dive buddy to discover and point them out. Doug spotted a nice one today as we were on our way back in. It was right on the top of the reef at the shoreline in only 2 feet of water. We watched it change colors and shapes to warn us off.
