The surface looked good enough to check out a new reef off Honeymoon Cove this morning. The water was green but visibility looked promising. Once again, the ocean broke its promise. Poor visibility on the reef gave me lots of backscatter-filled photos to choose from today.
Before dropping into the gloom we saw a Mola Mola jumping out of the water several times. Several minutes into the dive I saw Merry looking up. There was a Mola Mola just above her with some serious propeller damage. As I was framing a shot in the viewfinder another mola swam into the frame.
We made a second dive on Merry's Reef. On our previous dives her we found Sunstars everywhere. Kevin and I tried to remove one stuck in a lobster trap but it was unwilling to let go. Today we founs several Sunstars, or rather former Sunstars. They have been through a Bass-O-Matic and dropped back onto the reef. Bat stars had a field day.
Visibility was about twelve feet with lots of particulates suspended throughout the water column.
