Tubbataha Reef

June 2008 - Page Two



On the way back home, we lingered for a day at Quiminatin Island, which was pretty cool both above and below the surface.

Some of the best macro photo opportunities I've ever had were here...







Pulse coral




Face to face with a stonefish








Lionfish kindly poses for a portrait




There was a great variety and quantity of nudibranch




















Our home away from home, the Borneo Explorer, meets up with its sister ship, the Oceanic Explorer













A harlequin shrimp hides in soft coral




Banded pipefish, a straight cousin to the seahorse




Rock lobsters




Don't mess with me
