Sunabe Sunset Snorkel

Mushroom Leather Coral
Can you see the Stone Fish? (hint: look for a fin) Turns out they are the most venomous fish in the world. I took this photo in about three feet of water in very choppy conditions. At one point the three feet of water I was in became about a foot and a half worth of water and I dropped rather close to this guy.

Sea Cucumber
