To Dive Or Not To Dive? Obviously Dive!
Puri Jati dive site is sloping sand hosting an amazing array of creatures which are to be able to either blend in completely with the soft dark sand, or appear or disappear into it at will. Macro marine life is well adapted to it’s environment. With many of these critters you may quite easy find yourself looking directly at them without realising they are actually there.
Muck Dives For Macro Lovers
Initially diving at Puri Jati dive site can feel a bit confusing as there seem to be no major features with which to orientate yourself. However every diver once he has dived it several times will start to discern where he is and will be able to navigate the site. Puri Jati is a shallow dive spot of generally less than ten meters depth and therefore dive times could be quite long. It is usually the hunger or bladder pressure that makes you head back to the beach. Some of our dives over there are easy nearly couple of hours long and average dive times are often well over 60 minutes.
Once you get used to diving in Puri Jati you will notice changes in activity at different times of the day and in our experience the six hour period from about nine in the morning to around three in the afternoon seems to be the most active and provide the best chance of seeing the largest variety of critters.
