Navigation Dive

Christmas Tree-coral & mollusks, a few fish, mostly sandy bottom, sever giant sea cucumbers. Had to swim hard to get out of lagoon onto reef, then swimming hard for skills- 22 kick cycles/30m, then navigate a square 1 person compass & kicks, 1 person depth. Everyone low on air- I was at ~35 bar when we started back in & I had to share air at the safety stop w the instructor & then switch to snorkle @ surface & swim hard to get to beach.
