Nice shots, Marie!

I love nurse sharks! I was lucky enough to spend some time ogling one not so long ago - only it was at the aquarium, lol. Not convinced I'd want to get up close and personal with one, though I suppose if one HAD to swim with a shark, they'd be one of the 'safer' options. Scary! O.O

AHHH-HAAA! Another sighting of the elusive KiddoFish! Goodness they're cute! Do you know what kind of fish are in the other shots?

So cool to see the world from that perspective. . . thank you for posting these!

OH well.. We got up close to many many sharks that day. Mostly reef sharks and nurse sharks. Honestly none of them seemed scary after swimming in the wide open area near the abyss and then you see no aggression like you see in the movies. Very nice creatures in my opinion. Very calming experience really. My son touched that nurse shark in the picture.
As for your question about the other fish(more pics to come and would love id's for the fish) No I don't know what they are. Was too busy swimming along the bottom to listen to what the guide was saying.that is if he was saying anything (I wouldn't know lol) Any body who knows feel free to ID fish I put up over the next few days. Have hundreds of pics to sort through and some more will end up here.

Agent those are some great pics!!!! Must be soo awesome to be diving and seeing all those fish!
Thanks! It was no short an incredible experience. Wish I was still there on the ocean floor. Thank god that time the guide didn't mind that I rarely surfaced or listened to him lol(and trusted my kids instead of trying to insist the stay on the boat!). I would recommend this to be added to anyones bucket list :fish::love:

HAHAHA! I'm NOT gonna ask how you know that, Agent! XP


. . . hrm. I'm starting to think I should just give up and rename this thread "Agent's underwater investigations," or something, since you're the only one who's playing! So glad you are, cuz' I'm loving these shots!!!

. . .can't wait to see what else you dig up - a video would be awesomesauce!!!
