Scuba Diving with Triton Dive Lodge in July

Written by
Scuba divng in Sodwana Bay with Triton Dive Lodge has never been better.  Sure the water temp has dropped to a chilly 22 degrees but the colder water has brought with it schools of devil rays jumping, Mantas on Bikini and all over two mile reef.  Dolphins on Seven Mile Reef and even whale shark sightings every weekend.  We also have the added bonus of the Humpbacks cruising slowloy past the bay with their calfs.  The days are warm and the evenings mild.  What better way to escape the cold than come to Sodwana Bay and get a dive or two in with Triton.

Scuba Diving with Triton Dive Lodge in June

Written by

This last month we have had some really excellent dives.  With warm sunny days and mild evenings, people have been visiting Sodwana Bay to escape the cold of Cape Town and Johannesburg and who can blame them!  We were able to snorkel with Manta Rays several times as they have been feeding close to Quarter Mile Reef.  The vapour puffs on the horizon indicate the first Humpbacks are again migrating past the Bay.

Triton Diving in Madagascar 2010

Written by

We have recently returned from our second trip to Nose Sakatia and just like the first trip it was a huge success with long days of sunshine in a tranquil atmosphere whilst being spoilt with the warmest hospitality of Sakatia Lodge.  As always the diving was excellent in the warm tropical water with many interesting things to be seen.

More January Sightings

Written by
With the water now reaching 27 degrees it seems that we now have a resident Manta Ray at Stringer Reef on Two Mile.  I have been lucky enough to witness this amazing animal twice in the last few weeks as it hovers over the cleaning stations.  On the same dive we had the friendliest Potato Bass in the world whichI think wanted to come home with us.  We were also lucky to see a Brindle Bass on Eight Mile Reef.

January Sightings

Written by
The first month of the year at Triton was a lot of fun and I think we dived every single day.  Peter found a fish that was smaller than his thumb nail and we enjoyed dives to some of the further reefs.  The title photo is a Raggy Scorpion Fish laying in an orange cup sponge.
