We has one afternoon to kill on a Skoaching Trip up to Exmouth, and we thought it would be a waste not to see Ningaloo Reef when in such close vicinity to the World Heritage Site.
So we met up with mate Ben Van Dorsen, who owned a dingy, and went for a snorkel off Tantabiddi Beach
We scooted off, eager for what the Reef held under the waves
BVD found his spot, lowered the anchor and threw us overboard
Such a green world
Ders sat on a coral brain
and I stood on a limestone outcrop
Ders had to surface to get his underwater camera
There was life everywhere in these parts
Ders came gliding around to capture the action
We spotted this little guy slicing under rocks, looking for a tasty bite to eat
BVD was on a mission too – he was getting set with his gidji, keeping his eyes peeled for fish scales he knows taste the best
and sure enough, soon after he collected
Ders knew it was time to get back in the boat, as BVD had told us stories of times when he had speared good tasting fish, and bigger fish had tried to steal them off of him
So after we got all our stuff safe back on board, we rolled up in our towels and congratulated BVD on catching that nights dinner.
