Unfortunately, it is not very common these days to come across John Dory, locally known as Pixxi San Pietru (Peter’s Fish). During this dive at Mgarr ix-Xini with Denis Marin, we were lucky to see one gracefully finning along. We observed it for several minutes; admiring its incredibly thin profile (if you happen to point a dive light at it, the light easily penetrates to the other side) and graceful movement.
On this dive I also tested a new piece of gear: the Shearwater Petrel 2 Dive Computer, which is just a fabulous computer. Can’t wait to use it on technical dives!
