In a departure from our previous days SCUBA diving with Diversity SCUBA in Tofo, we decided to free dive instead of SCUBA dive.
Unfortunately, the Tofo coastline doesn't play nicely with free diving. Not only is the surface quite turbulent, which makes resting not very restful, but the surface is invisible even at 15 metres. Moreover, the current at surface and at depth are different, so one's constantly swimming back to a neutral start. Thus, while we put in a dozen or so dives, we never really managed to strike a groove. We did, however, run into several whale shark (Rhincodon typus) during our time on the surface!
Following our dives, we jumped into our SCUBA gear and rounded out the day with a pleasant 30 metre dive.
