On the surface, there are three rounded granite boulders breaking the water – one of which does look like an elephant’s head.
Below, the boulders are actually very angular and arranged untidily on top of each other creating a ‘boulderscape’ of blue triangular swim-throughs.
Hiding in the swim throughs are shoals of snapper, triggers, surgeons, wrasse, and goatfish to name just a few. Right on the bottom are the goatfish
Next level up are the emperors
Somewhere out of sight, this camouflaged grouper had wedged itself into a coral bush.
Clown triggers enjoy a good swim through like the rest of us.
There are red tooth triggers too.
The inevitable white collared butterflyfish,
And a young adult yellow boxfish of quite a size.
Where there are larger gaps between the rocks where the light can penetrate, there are little clusters of colourful soft corals.
There is a hole in one of the rocks. It makes great a great little porthole for portrait shots. Though it’s not exactly a swim-through … unless you’re a fish.
