I has dived when snorkeling over divers below and I snapped a rising bubble which looked unusual. When I looked at it closer later that day I realised I captured a reflection of another snorkeler above me.

this dive is amazing. starting outside the pass (during the incoming tide) the zodiac drops you into the blue. by the time you meet up with your buddies under the boat, the sharks are already arriving, usually oceanic silvertips, silkeys and reef. dropping down to about 40 metres you will probably see a great hammerhead or two cruising the outer edges of the pass , usually they trail the large schools of eagle rays that cruise the area. if the visability is good you'll be able to see literally hundreds of sharks circling a submerged seamount below you. catching the tide you'll pick up speed as you "fly" through the pass , as hundreds of barracuda, the resident dolphins and some really big mantas glide past. ducking into one of the small caves is a great way to get out of the current and watch the amazing show , its also where you'll find the "sleeping" sharks . as you drift through the pass you'll be gradually getting shallower until you arrive in the lagoon and the end of an amazing ride . and like all great rides the first thing you want to do when its over is do it again.
