Currents and Counter Currents
||We had a couple of dives where
currents, eddies and vortexes even made the fish so confused that they
didnít know which way to turn. One of our fellow divers, Poul,
suddenly found himself in front of our group rather than at the end as he
was gently swept past us by an eddy. Very entertaining, indeed.
To the Extreme
Currents are always an integral part of diving in Indonesia and most certainly part of the reason for the great bio diversity.
Our dive briefings always included a bit about the current but usually we didn't know for sure which way to dive until we descended. But on most of our dives we worked with the currents instead of against them (a lost battle anyway). One notable deviation was our dive at Sahaung at Bangka Island.
