Would loved to have been there but I'll be back in Norway on the 28th July for the arrival of the Tall Ships Race in Stavanger... Would have been cheaper to stay in Bristol. However I hope you enjoy diving in Ascension Mark - I'd try the seas around Ascension if I were you! Great fishing area.

Mark dont worry about the big fish (sharks)
watch out for the smaller ones, 4-5 inches pure black
but with teeth like sharks !!
Salt water parana's. If you have gloves wear them
If your wearing a dry bag ok, wet suit try not peeing in it,
this gets them going abit.
there's a picture of one (i think) in hutch's pic's 061.
Happy diving.

Thanks Bob I have dived the area many time as i took 7 diving exped to ascension when I was in the Royal Marines, The Black fish are know as common trigger fish and wont hurt you in anyway the small sgtmajor fish nibble at you all the time when sitting on the shot to come up, The are moay eels are in ever hole and are more dangerous, But thanks anyway

When you're sat in row Z and the ball hits your head, that's Zamora !

(Well you started it !)
