Had a quick trip to Menorca with the kiddies last month and just got around to downloading my pics, and it reminded me to post a quick report as I did manage to get wet in the salty stuff (as well as plenty of diving in the pool with the bairns).

First 2x dives I did in Fornells in the Marine reserve with Diving Fornells (a good reliable centre who are there year after year whereas others keep closing and re-opening unpredictably). The reserve was choc full of beasties as ever and some nice caves to explore too.

Dive number 3 was with a mate who I have dived with out there before and we decided to go "off-piste" and see what could be found by just finding a bit of rocky coast and hopping in for an explore (we found a quite spot down a rocky scramble just due east of Son-Parc which is on the Northern Coast).

I have to say, this was one of the most enjoyable dives I have done, it was 100% exploration - possibly exploring some parts that had never been dived before (it was pretty remote). It turned out to be a decent spot too, not as much life as in other parts of Menorca but some really pretty topography , tunnels , gullies and beautiful early morning light pouring into all of it (vis was excellent). It was great not knowing what we might find and just pleasing the two of us (not having to be guided and keep up etc). It is dives like these that remind me why I learned to dive. Would love to do more of the same.

I enclose a few pics anyway.
BFN.
