Hammerhead video at Emperor Laamu

| No TrackBacks

 

Whoohoo! Hammerhead! Watch this fabulous short video taken at Fushi Kandu aka fish soup.

Completely out of nowhere, and unexpected, this was shot in very shallow water. The hammerhead was around 8-10m depth cruising over the top of guides and divers measuring approx 3m in length.

Emperor Divers Laamu rescues Hawksbill turtle

| No TrackBacks

 

Whilst taking guests out for a dolphin excursion, Sandeep, our Divemaster Trainee at Emperor Divers Laamu, rescued a hawksbill turtle which had become entangled in a hessian grain sack.

Fortunately Adam, Centre Manager, was coming back from a dive on the dhoni and took the turtle from Sandeep to continue the rescue. With careful attention they freed it and contacted the Olive Ridley Turtle Project for help and advice.

They advised it was OK to release, the turtle but to check to make sure it could descend. "It tried but kept bobbing back up so we retrieved it from the water and placed it in our rinse tank (filled with salt water) where it had a sleep," explained Adam. It was then flown to Marine Savers where it will get all the help it needs to get back to the ocean.

You can see the update of the turtle, they named Acorn, below in the video by Marine Savers. Good luck Acorn!

Watch this super video taken at Mundhoo Kandu of a whale shark that the team at Emperor Divers Laamu might just get to name! Thanks to Adam and all for sharing. Adam explains:

"What an amazing dive looking for white tip and grey reef sharks, and instead we came across this graceful beauty! Sooooo lucky! We are currently waiting feedback from Maldives Whale Shark Research Project for details of this amazing creature. Their initial response is that as this has been a new encounter we get to name it!"
