Diving on Friday didn’t seem advisable so we went out Saturday instead. No ordinary dive either – we went out on the “Lejaine”, a Turkish schooner operating out of the Hilton in RAK. The dive was “Snapper Alley”, a tug and barge that was discovered two years ago in shallow water just offshore the RAK/UAQ border. Not spectacular but plenty of life including the snappers that give the site its name. We were treated to breakfast on the way out and a three-course meal on the way back which I could get used to! Thanks to Derek for organizing this trip.
