Saint Kitts: 2 Dives-- February 7, 2007

These were the best dives of the trip. Explored a lot of underwater wreckage, which always makes for the best fish habitats.

There was a bulldozer, a good-sized wreck, and a van. For some reason, when I was swimming around the van, I could almost hear the music of Bob Marley playing. Must have been the Caribbean influence.

The shots of the sea turtle were in the galley of the wrecked ship. The second one shows him swimming out of the paneless picture window.

There was a full moon during the cruise, and I caught my first sight of coral polyps spawning. It's very hard to get a picture of a polyp's tentacles, since they almost always retract when divers approach.
