Best photos from our recent dive trip to the GBR on Ocean Quest

We had a great time (as usual) on Ocean Quest, it was only 2 nights and we enjoyed every dive and every minute.  Here are the rest of our photos, in no particular order….

Titian Trigger Fish.  We don't usually get this close, but it's not mating season.  Just look at those teeth.

Titian Trigger Fish. We don’t usually get this close, but it’s not mating season, so we took a chance. Just look at those teeth, these fish are well known for attacking unsuspecting scuba divers.

Mouri Wrasse.  Again, we enjoyed close interation with this amazing fish.  Swimming directly toward me and swimming into my hand when it was raised above my head.

Harliquin File Fish.  These fish are hard to spot and even harder to photograph.    They attach themselves to reef during the night to avoid being taking by larger predators.
