A collection of underwater favourites.

Turtle High Five

Named for their narrow, pointed beaks, Hawksbill Turtles are typically found on coral reefs where they feed on sponges, sea anemones and jelly fish.  Sea Turtles are the living representatives of a group of reptiles that have lived on earth for over one hundred million years.  Little Cayman

Humpback Head Shot

The Atlantic population of Humpback whales congregate in the Silverbank Marine Sanctuary from late January through April. Females travel there to allow their newborns to rest, grow and learn important whale behaviours before swimming north in the spring. Dominican Republic

Banded Butterfly Fish Pair

Banded Butterfly fish have evolved with a stripe through their eye as a protection mechanism.  Often seen in pairs, they are a reef fish that is usually found at depths of less than 66 feet (20 metres)  Grand Cayman

Nurse Shark Reef Cruise

Unless they are hunting, nurse sharks swim slowly which makes them a fun subject for photography.   Their metabolism is so low that they eat less than 20 % of other comparable shark species meaning more of them can be located in a given area without impacting food resources.  To offset their slow metabolism, nurse sharks have large tail fins to help them swim efficiently.  Grand Cayman

Brown Bowl Sponge

The Brown Bowl sponge is in no way as boring as its name implies.  The texture is like a rich velvet and the lights from my camera rig picked up a glittery sheen over some sections.  Tucked at the top of a small coral head,  it contrasts beautifully with the crystal clear water around it.  Grand Cayman

Galapagos Sea Turtle

At 133,000 square kilometers, the Galapagos Marine Reserve is one of the largest marine protected areas in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage site.   The Galapagos Islands provides critical nesting beaches for green sea turtles. Every year turtles travel from Costa Rica, Salvador, Columbia,  mainland Ecuador, Peru and Chile to nest.  If  you look closely in the background of this picture, you can see the outline of two hammerhead sharks.  Darwin Island, Galapagos

Galapagos Hammerhead

Hammerhead sharks have special sensors that run under their wide heads which allow them to pick up on electrical signals sent out by other living creatures. This makes them tricky to photograph as they will avoid the bubbles that scuba regulators create when a diver exhales.  Although I could often see more sharks than I could count, to get a close up like this, I had to “hide” behind rock formations for a shark to come close enough.  Darwin Island, Galapagos

Baby Humpback

This baby humpback was curious about us and would come in for a close look while his mom was resting.  To witness the relationship between mother and calf makes you appreciate these wonderful creatures even more.  Dominican Republic
