Out on the Zodiacs again, and this time they dropped us on the north eastern side of Little Brother where there is the highest concentration of gorgonian fans in the Red Sea. The fans are down around 30-40 metres and they were just everywhere, some of them just enormous sizes. I spent a fair bit of time around 35 metres just admiring the beauty of the fans.

We swam back along the eastern wall of the island back towards the boat, admiring the corals, and colourful reef fish. There were two Titan trigger fish courting or dancing or something, which looked very cool. At one point, I had a grey reef shark swim right below me, and we also saw a grey reef shark swimming below the boat as we were doing our safety stop. Very cool!

I would love to know what you think...
