Diving Myanmar: Western Rocky!

Ornate Spiny Lobster

A Stonefish! My first!

Western Rocky is a great dive site, 40 nautical miles from Kawthaung, Myanmar.  It consists of 2 or 3 dives, the Eagles Nest and the Cave.  We had 3 dives on the site, and they were all terrific.  Except for my dive group (of course) everyone saw a juvenile Whale Shark!  14 feet or so! Tommi, one of the Finn twins, took a lovely photo of it. I wish I had seen it, of course, but it looks like I am still searching for a dive experience with whale sharks.  Even without seeing the Whale Shark, Western Rocky is a great dive site!  Here are some of my awesome finds:

Banded coral shrimp (these are very small…maybe an inch, two at the most.
Big Red Octopus! He was fantastic…not afraid of me at all.
Adorable baby boxfish, just taking shape! cute, cute, cute!
Chevron Barracuda
Beautiful clam
A decorator crab…see the face in upper right?
Teeny, tiny Durban Dancing Shrimps!
Fimbriated Eel with Durban Dancing Shrimp friends!
Scorpionfish eye
Zebra Moray Eel
Gorgeous Tree Coral and Feather Star
