Embudu Maldives


we are so addicted to Maldive can’t help it
look at it it just gorgeous beautiful everywhere this morning we went in the water and
how is your experience this morning it’s like another level if you are someone
who lives for this like we do you know if your passion is you know protecting
the oceans and the things living in it keeping the oceans clean you know marine
conservation this is what we’re about to be here it shows you the reward of your
work of your effort it’s like the beauty of it is it literally it makes you cry
like seriously when you see this it’s just like oh my god it is so beautiful
and we had booked here because we heard that the house wreath is just
unbelievable than just our first trip it into limit I need to really do it with one thumb we went out snorkeling it
was close to the buoy that marks the spot where you can’t go any further
there basically you’re gonna be in the open water who are following the edge of
the reef now the reef edge here is strange
because it’s really shallow like three feet to six feet deep and then it drops
off to like 20 meters it’s like 60 feet or more really something really really
suddenly there’s no transition at all so we were on the edge and we were about as
far away from the island as you could get within the area they recommend you
snorkeling and I was in front and I came face to face with a triggerfish who was
not swimming she was just in front of a rock and I
knew it was bad because I knew it was probably her nest and she just looked at
me and I saw her face come up and I said ah crap
and like sort of put my hand up like I’m turning we’re going back and I turned
around put the camera between me and the fish just in case and the fish seemed
cool enough but as Jim turned around the fish made a go at her and bit her twice
on her foot man ice I saw it and there was nothing I could do about it like I
just sort of splashed around and got the fish to like leave her and she started
swimming but I just saw like doors case senario possibly unfolding thank God it
didn’t turn that way the fish on the bottom of her
water shoot twice and it didn’t I mean it did compress her foot like you can
see it looks like she closed it in a door but it didn’t like really break the
skin it didn’t take a chunk out it didn’t bite a finger off but you know if
you’re a diver or a snorkeler and you know about triggerfish these these
things aren’t vicious when they are protecting their nets this one was about
2 feet long and it was just all mouth and teeth coming it was like oh when he
pointing at that trick of fish that’s like what because I saw that fish hiding
and then he just like pointing it at that fish and then he start to turn
around and then I just start to turn out right after him I was swimming I just
got something bit me but I was like what’s going on I was screaming I think
I screamed so loud probably scared to hell of that fish where the full-face
snorkel mask so you can actually basically talk or scream or anything in
there it’s not like being you know in just the have face mask where your mouth
would be in the water your mouth is open yeah so I heard her screaming right
through the water and I was like oh here we go you know it’s gonna be fight to
the death with this trigger fish now but at that time I didn’t know that was
the trick of fish bit me I just felt like something bit me and I was like I
just feel like I would I was in some kind of territory and got bitten by a
dog with something at that time I swam pretty fast it happens what can you do
you know we’re aware of the dangers of being in the water and you know we we
face them with a smile it’s you know when we saw a shark today we saw this
trigger fish and I’m sure in the course of the next you know 9 or 10 days being
here we’re gonna see all variety of you know potentially dangerous marine life
but it’s cool you know what we’re here to respect it you know I saw the threat
of it it was just too late you know we we’ve swam in plenty of places where
we’ve seen trigger fish and usually their their nets are quite low and you
saw em both of them it’s fine you know you have plenty of distance it’s just
she’s all happens like I said this this reef is so low shallow at one point and
then it just drops right off so even if you’re on the edge this this trigger
fish was right on the edge and it was just like coming face to face with it it
was like oh fudge you know like just just saw I saw the fish’s eyes turn
right to me and my first thought was only put put the camera out so if the
fish makes a bite it’s gonna bite at the camera and that’ll give me time to turn
but it didn’t it just sort of like advanced slowly and it gave me time to
time but it didn’t give her time to turn all the way yeah just feel like I was
chasing by something and it was kind of freaking me out though and I was like
okay what’s going on and just like he just kept asking me like are you okay
you okay yeah I got behind her you know boost her up and took a look at I didn’t
see any hole in her shoe I followed behind her a little bit I just told her
go and I didn’t say any blood trail coming out her foot so I knew it
probably didn’t by you know like take a bite this fish has like a crushing bite
and a grinding bites like if it gets the end of your finger it will
definitely take the end of your finger off but if it bites on to something like
solid like the middle of your leg or like in her case it was the middle of
her foot on the bottom it doesn’t take a chunk out it’s not like a sharp you know
that has like ripping teeth it has crushing teeth so I figure she probably
had a good vergis which is what she has and that will take that you know it’s
always an adventure it’s their home you know we just visitors and we don’t want
to cast any band shadow on this place this this reef here is super awesome
this is like a really super awesome reef the the diversity and the volume of
marine life is unbelievable I mean there’s like huge shoals of fish around
you all the time all different kinds of fish and it’s it’s just amazing it’s
