I went in for a quick peak but couldn't stop... they all bring back such fantastic memories! I never noticed the reticulation on the face of the female hogfish-- she'll be a male soon with that yellow cheek stripe. Where's the sea lion balls?

It is my dream to visit Galapagos. What a wonderful account of your adventure with the various sharks.

Welcome to the nirwana of divers!
Darwin's Arch, it will always remain very special for me, I was there back in Feb 2008. No whalesharks, but hey, saw them again few days ago in Djibouti. Now you've got to put Tubbataha and Palau on your list, these are my three prefered. Still have to do Cocos, PNG, Rangiora/Fakarava...but coming soon. For now, next stop is Havelock, not the best diving in the world, but one of the nicest beach...and many cuddles. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Where is your next diving?
