Enito our driver and Joel our guide took us to three different locations to snorkel. The first was just around the lower end of Santa Catalina. The water was choppy to say the least and a little churned visibility wise. The second was over a reef and we met a trumpet fish for the first time. The third spot was simply the best. Here Enito dropped us at the edge of a reef, just beyond the very steep edge was nothing but sand and very deep water. We rode the current along a wall of activity. Swarms of fish from tiny to medium, The brain coral was in perfect condition, nothing new there perhaps, except this was the biggest we had ever seen – quite simply massive – some five and six feet across. A herd of squid, a baby barracuda but the highlight was when Joel pointed out to a very big female stingray resting after lunch, down he went, woke her gently and off she flew at a slow, steady glide. I finally managed to get a picture of an angelfish, sadly without Bear’s finger for perspective, but she was over eight inches long and stunning. The water was crystal clear and wimpy me who normally whines about being cold was far too engrossed, here are some pictures.
