Coral Castle — Tufi, Papua New Guinea. The shear size and spectacular intricacy of this coral stand as indeed a site to behold. It was a reminder why we all pursue diving with such passion.

Coral bommies dot most of the dive sites in Turks & Caicos. This one attracted my attention because of its shape and the beautifully colored purple rope sponges complimenting the typical azure blue of this part of the Caribbean.

My New Friends
If you’re diving Bonaire and are looking for something to do for the surface day before you fly visit the Donkey Sanctuary. Buy some carrots and you are now their best friend, great cause that’ll give you a warm and fuzzy.
