Jim and I spent another wonderful morning enjoying Irefa Beach. The swimming was great and the scenery is so beautiful. In the afternoon we joined the other couple with us and went to a snorkelling area called the South Pass. We snorkelled in a small lagoon full of amazing fish and beautiful coral gardens. We swam among 3 ft long Napoleon fish, black tipped reef sharks, white tipped reef sharks, moray eels, and hundreds of other types of beautiful fish. Some of our favorite fish were the trumpetfish, parrotfish, angelfish, moorish idols, picassofish and many many more. We have never seen so many different fish, so close. It was pretty exciting to be so close to sharks. From the lagoon was a passage into the pass between the atoll and the open ocean, where the coral gardens drop off dramatically and you are left with the most amazing breath taking view ever. The lighting, the fish, the coral gardens, it was fabulous. I think it is one of the most beautiful sites I have ever experienced in my life. To top this experience off we floated with the current along the coral to the pass. Totally amazing!
