    Once Again To The Reef III

    For my third and last scuba dive of this trip Serial Divers visited "The Whale," Le Baliene de le Pan de Sucre. This is a small rock that lies to the West of Le Pain De Sucre which resembles the hump back of a whale when viewed from a short distance. The reef below is varied and full of aquatic life and color. I dove to 72 feet and the dive lasted 43 minutes. Here are some photos:

    Did you see many of the invasive lion fish on your dives?

    John, no spear fishing is allowed in the marine park, even of the invasive Lionfish. I imagine that there are permits issued when there are organized Lionfish hunting expeditions. Amy, I saw a total of two Lionfish during my three dives.

    Two too many. They did have organized hunts here.
