More Fabulous Leafy Sea Dragons!!!
AT SOUTH AUSTRALIA
As the Leafy Sea Dragon Program is no longer available, this and other associated pages remain for your viewing pleasure as a reminder of diving's Golden Age.

When last I visited my friends Jim and Josie Thiselton at Kangaroo Island, I thought they had the perfect gem of a hidden dive spectacular. After all, how could you beat diving with leafy sea dragons and other marine wonders from a small-group day boat run by a wise and helpful expert? See Story #1 .
Then, during the May through October season, Jim, Josie and the vessel will operate out of Ponape (Pohnpei) in Micronesia, offering tropical diving in the scattered atolls East of Truk Lagoon.
During this latest adventure, we used Wind Cheetah as a day boat, testing out itís cruising speed and dive deck, as well as itís spacious lounge. The sea dragons were always right where Jim pointed, even if we didnít see them until we got quite close. Hiding as they do amid miles of waving fronds of kelp, the little rascals disappear into the background if you take your eyes off them for the briefest time. As you can see, their expressive faces are among the most unforgettable in the entire undersea world, and a challenge to express through photographs.
