Remarks > 30 divers. We were as early as possible to get into the water before the hurd of divers would make their new year dive. There were 4 divers before us. We followed the bottom profile until we reached 20 mtrs. I saw a glimps of the catfish but left it alone. In the bottom you can see where it embeds itself. We pushed on further and spotted more spots where catfish rest. On the way back visibility came near zero as a group of divers tried to find their way. A thick sandstorm like wall came towards us and we ascended a bit to avoid it. 

Actually I’m not bothered with that cloud of dust in the catfish area. At least they can enjoy some peace and quiet down there until the dust settles again. 
Left you see a depthprofile. Route and depth related to map is not measured, but it gives an idea.
