Chevron Barracuda schooling. Look at the back! They were everywhere!
Here is Arjun, one of my dive team, and a real sweetheart! This pufferfish was HUGE. We just couldn’t get over the size of it!
Sameer off of the boat’s dive platform! He was on our dive team on this dive…he was separated from his group.
This nudibranch was so intricately beautiful.
This is a Leopard Shark! At a distance I thought it was a nurse shark … when I saw it was a Leopard, my first sighting ever, I skedaddled to take a photo!
I wish it would have hung out longer! It was so gorgeous!
A Great Moray and a Cleaner Shrimp
This is just too awesome! A Cleaner Shrimp cleaning a Great Moray!
Truly, this is one of the coolest things I have ever seen and photographed! Just incredible. And no, the Moray does not eat the shrimp, it is cleaning him of parasites.
Hello….Olive Sea Snake here.
They were not shy! They were curious about the divers.
Yes, they are very venomous, but not at all aggressive.
A pretty Green Sea Turtle
Gorgeous shoals everywhere.
How I love diving surrounded by fish!
Huge Trigger Fish!
Unicorn Fish…aren’t they cute?
As The Spirit of Freedom continued our dives, we ended up seeing some pretty interesting critters, and fabulous activity as well. I had never seen an Olive Sea Snake before…but I have now! I have seen the Banded Sea Snake who is very shy, and very toxic. The Olive Greens were quite curious, and followed us all over the reef!
