Details: Wow this was an amazing dive. On the way out to the point, a snorkeller let the divemaster know that a school of Bumphead Parrotfish were in the shallows munching on coral. So we quickly geared up and jumped in with them. A large school of big bumpies cruised around in about 2 metres of water. Incredible. The rest of the group wasn’t as interested as me though, so i had to rush a few photos in, and quickly get back with the group. Of course on the way to the rest of the group was the large school of Jacks…another great subject. A few snaps and it was time to descend. In about 15m i got reasonably close to a White-tipped reef shark being cleaned by a wrasse, and higher up on the reef a good turtle encounter. Despite the sites name we saw no barracuda, but there was so much else to photograph. This was a really great dive. After we finished the dive it was lunch time, and a good opportunity to sneak in some under over shots.
