At the other end of the island was the house reef.
We swam out to it taking in the sights as we went.
Powder Blue Surgeon Fish
Regal Angel Fish
When we got to the edge of the reef the seabed just dropped away 100's of metres.
My husband is a strong swimmer, but I played safe and wore a life jacket.
We snorkelled on the house reef a couple of times and I got a little sunburnt the second time! After this I worn a pair of my husband's shorts! :)
Parrotfish eat the coral and the ground up pieces pass through them as the sand that builds up the islands.
Spotted Unicorn Fish
Ribbon Butterfly Fish
As we headed back to the shore I spotted this table coral
and on top of it was this cushion starfish.
Next we saw this Porcupinefish
and almost back to the island we discovered this Stingray.
We swam along beside him for a short while and then headed to dry land.
