Dive Trip to Pulau Aur

These are some pics from my dive trip to Pulau Aur, a Malaysian Island, that I made 21-23 of May 1999. I did my PADI Advanced Open Water certification during this trip. Pulau Aur is located as far east of peninsula Malaysia as you can get and is not as exploited as other Mayalsian islands as for example Pulau Tioman. The resort is very small and fascilities limited, but the nature is great and so is the diving. Visibillity (under water of course) was somewhat poor due to the 'baby monsun', but we still saw turtles, cod fish, titan trigger fish, murena, a dead baby lemon shark and other fun things (like a twister which almost close enough to the boat for some really fun action...)

To keep load times down I've split this into three pages.
