Thanks Dave & Merry, Shane & Jo.

From what I remember, this was actually taken just before disembarking at the end of the trip. I saw some reef sharks circling the boat and that made me bring my camera to the deck. I could not get a shark pic but saw these boobies diving for fish. It's fun to watch these guys dive at speeds upto 60mph into the water to catch fish! Reply to this
