Take your time, they are there. look for one or two of them with a touch of yellow in the fin, that means the school is near. Go to the point and off about 25 yards into the blue and have a look come back and then wind around the point and keep looking.

This school of jacks came straight at us at high speed! Our guide grabbed her mask in shock as the school swam straight through us at high speed. I had no time to compose hence the messy shot... D300, Tokina 10-17, 2x Sea & Sea YS-110 strobes

Taken in very strong current. I took 2 shots before my strobe arms folded back flat from the force. The Barracuda hovered around me effortlessly as I clung on like a flag, trying to take this shot! D300, Tokina 10-17 Fisheye
