Yesterday, a group sighted a pygmy whale shark here at South Point so our group was keen as mustard to get here to see whether the whale shark was still around.

We descended into around 25m onto the reef and just swam out into the blue, further and further, hoping to catch a glimpse of the biggest fish in the ocean.  However, after a bit of swimming it was clear that there was nothing out there but endless blue so we swam back to the reef to be greeted by schools of beautiful purple leatherjacket and schooling banner fish.

Again, we saw white tip reef sharks, turtles, titan trigger fish (no attacks fortunately!), spotted sweetlip, and green morays along the shallower parts of the reef.

I would love to know what you think...
