Got back from my 3 day scuba trip last night. All I can say is, WOW!

It was truly remarkable. I had some reservations as I heard how damaged the reef has become due to pollution, warm waters, shipping, etc. But I was not let down.

The weather was perfect, the water was a great temperature at about 79 degrees. Didn't need a wet suit but wore a stinger suit due to the possibility of jelly fish. Didn't seem necessary though, but I guess better to be safe. Don't need an Irukandji stinging you!

The pictures barely do the place any justice. The videos are better, but too big to upload right now. So many fish, so much coral. Sea turtles, reef sharks, nurse sharks, barracudas, eels, you name it!

Amazing place!
