I found this Seahorse during a drift dive on a very sandy and flat dive site close to the Perhentian Islands (Malaysia). As soon as we did see the bottom (+/-22 meters) we realized that the current was very, very strong. With our nose in the current we were searching for seahorses in the small coral “bushes”. It took us about 15 minutes to find one. When we hit the surface after our dive we noticed the enormous distance we covered during this dive. Luckily the boat found us and picked us up.
We planned to go to Sipadan, but due to the conflicts we changed our plans and made a few dives around Kota Kinabalu (Malaysia). The water was crystal clear and we made some great dives over there. This Lionfish was one of the may we saw during this trip.
