... at noon at Esmeralda. Unusual sight up here and at this time of the year and the month. When we were just about to surface from a dive, it swam between us and the boat. Sorry for the quality of the photo, but it was a very rushed job!

My first ever here.

I thought about 14', my companion thought 18'. It was certainly more than half the length of my 26' boat. So quite a small one as they go.

One of the local dive sites outside the reef, level with the centre of town.

That is probably the greatest sight any diver could hope for. Beautiful. Thanks Peter.

It's my first, and I've only heard of one or two a year at most seen by others.
