Green moray eel, friendly green sea turtle and cleaning stations highlight first dives of 2017

blue-parrotfish

First day out this year. Limited visibility, water getting a bit chilly, slightly bumpy, but nice to be jumping off a boat. Highlights included a yawning green moray eel, very friendly green sea turtle, cleaning station with a spotted moray and banded coral shrimp, and a whitespotted filefish with all its spots showing. A blue parrotfish stopped and posed for me.
