As the camera fills up and files need to be deleted, the monthly cleansing can gobble up good photos hidden among many that are out of focus or of the lens cover or any other camera blunder that goes hand in hand with underwater photography. As I was sifting through the memory card, I came across the photos below taken by Bruce and Teresa only 2 weeks ago. Of 100+ photos, these 8 caught my eye and makes me wish I was diving every single day of the week.
If these critters don't wet your appetite for diving, then you've probably already seen it all and need to sell your diving gear. Just kidding.
Anyways, Teresa took these photos with a Sea and Sea over 3 days of diving in the Alacrity Rocks region on the western side of the Astrolabe Reef in Fiji.
And yes, that is a huge octopus!

Just when we all thought Manta Rays found another home away from the Astrolabe Reef, BAM! manta ray sightings 2 days in a row right off Paradise Beach on Ono Island.
The first day, the gang spotted their wing tips coming through the water's surface. As the boat was coming in for their surface interval after diving at Split Rock, they spotted the manta rays feeding in the water. Kevin made sure to take full advantage of the moment, exclaiming "STOP THE BOAT! STOP THE BOAT!" Kevin, Jason, and the rest of the crew quickly readied their mask, snorkel, and fins to have a swim with the manta rays for more than 30 minutes.Read more...

Thank you so very very much to Scott and Julianne, Wayne and Karen, and Andrew and Sharon.
First of all, thank you for such a fun time. Scuba diving in Naiqoro Passage, swimming at the waterfall, snorkeling on the big reef, cutting a trail to the top of the mountain, jokes at dinner with Dave and Jeanie, the Mr. Happy shirt, my new hair cut, taking the chain saw into the bush, drinking kava and dancing in Narikoso Village, and all of the other fun times we shared for a short time here in Fiji.Read more...

Aaron and Tara visited the Resort during the first week of November 2009. I remember the first day, checking out the camera gear after their refresher dive in front of the Resort. Nikon cameras, macro lenses, camera housing, and strobes, not to mention their normal diving gear. My initial thoughts were 'who needs all of this stuff?' But after I started looking at their pictures, I began to appreciate the gear and the patience that goes into making a beautiful photo.Read more...
