This has got to be one of the Worlds' best dives!

It has everything. The Marine life is big and small but with a roaring current you don't really have time to examine the colorful wall. It's hold on to your hat time and go with the flow.

The large pelagics are wall to wall and there is nothing more thrilling than to see the multidudinous sharks dart in for a nibble of some fish.

Predation is the name of the game and this is why the critters are so profuse I guess.

As you fly along (and that's what it is like) you need to be aware of where your group is (obviously) and watch your depth.

I was a bit wary getting in as there were huge breakers at the top of the drop off. Your dive master should put you in a ways off, get down quick and get to the wall.

The local dive guides are good, but perhaps a bit slack so tell 'em what you want.

Giant gorgonia fan. Washed by the strong currents that change direction like a wind in an open field, the Blue Corner is always full of life and is a favorite playground of large pelagic. Canon XSi / EF-S 17-85 IS USM in Ikelite housing.

Sometimes underwater is like being in an alien world. Particularly given the sense of weightlessness that occurs. The strange Nautilus looked to me the very likeness of an alien ..

"Turtle Farm" part of my Underwater Surrealism body of work. Turtles grow algae and other organisms on their shells. To remove these things, they go to cleaning stations to have fish eat these growths like a farm on their backs.
