trip report, that we had an amazing marine encounter.
On 2 dives, we had a hitch hiker. A remora. G motioned me to look, I at 1st saw nothing, then saw this little remora climbing up his legs. Laughed my a** off, blew 800psi, cause it kept swimming up his shorts! When he came over to me, he was yanking chunks outta my hair!
Next day going back, guess he felt he cleaned G off, as he came to me, ouch, those suckers nibble aka bite! He was very focused on the tender parts of my inner thighs, much funnier the last day when he was doing it to G!

Both days, he swam with us the last 40 min of our dive, very cool. The 3rd day out, I spotted him at the spot on a Tarpon, thankfully, found his spot.

Anyway, after I go through my pics, I'll post a link. Really unique experience.

:smiley36: Yea, they seem to like those tender areas.

Kinda freaky if you do not know it's there. Might be a good point for wet suit.

A dive buddy had one circling him and on the second dive he decided if it didn't leave him alone he would have a go at it with his knife. It wasn't around on our second dive!

Had to do a search for a picture.
