The Big & the Bold

Bigeye trevally RAWith no macro photographers in sight, Miguel’s Diving concentrated by request on larger marine life and current diving over the last several days. From the first dive’s glimpse of a Scalloped hammerhead to today’s jumping marlin, Gorontalo delivered big time. We stopped counting Nap.olean wrasse and couldn’t count the hundreds of Bigeye trevally spirally up the water column. Divers saw Green turtles every day, a Blacktip reef shark, a school of Queenfish, then a school of Chevron barracuda, then spooky Great barracuda, and a Spanish mackerel so big that our dive master first thought it was a tuna. Amongst the frenzied schools of plankton eaters, divers saw schools of mature batfish. We had a face-on encounter with a Giant trevally and a slow pass by a Short-finned devilray, also called pygmy manta or mobula. In the mix were sunny skies, flat blue seas, warm water, and vis approaching 30 meters.
