The location is Bonaire, the snorkeling trip put on by Woodwind Tours. If you are ever here, book with them – fabulous people, extremely knowledgeable, excellent equipment for everyone from beginner to experienced. They are more than reasonably priced (book the five hours, drinks, 3 snorkeling locations and food!)
The water is crystal clear. You can’t touch anything, feed anything or walk on the coral. Some areas are really shallow and you have to be extremely careful as well as along the drop off where you can’t see the bottom, just reflections off fish as they come and go from the depths. The photos were taken with my CanonD20. I don’t have names for most of these critters – so if you know any, please leave me a comment and I will fix the caption!
And then there are sponges…. and coral
