Korogoro Creek Snorkel

We went for our first snorkel in the Korogoro Creek at Hat Head today.  It was just before the top of the tide and it was beautiful.  The water is so clear with a maximum depth of about 2 metres.   We saw heaps of critters, from small hermit crabs to monster flat heads.  But, the big exciting find was a frog fish.  We have spent thousands of hours under the water taking photos, and to date we have only photographed 4 frog fish (North Stadbroke Island, Julian Rocks (Byron Bay) and 2 at Cook Island (Tweed Heads)).

Stirated Frogfish:  The critter was in 1 metre sitting snug against the rock.
