The weather was a bit rough today.

The wind was blowing strong from the south, and it rained on and off.

And the thunder…

After a couple of days of great weather, we were wondering if the rainy season was over 🙂



Visibility has not recovered, so it was a bit dark in the water with not much sunlight.


Purple queens are beautiful, but…


Juveniles are even more gorgeous!


A pair of Axilspot hogfish, large and small.


A juvenile Split-level hogfish.

I wanted to take a shot together with the Axilspot hogfish, but they were moving too fast!


Goniobranchus kuniei – one of my favorite nudibranchs!


Moray eels were discussing some secret matters…


And we had another Open Water Divers!

Congratulations, Nico and Taha!


Are you ready for June?
