Thanks Gdog. Keep your BRO dream alive!


If it is any consolation gdog, I missed both encounters. I was the only diver to miss the BRO. I wasn’t as fun as when you missed it though, because I really enjoyed rubbing it in your face, no offense. lol

Lol. I know, I'm the redheaded stepchild of the bunch.


As a red headed stepchild I take offense.

Nice work ScubaJess :)

I am finally done with all my photos. Took a total of 2,066 shots and got about 500 good to great shots. Far better percentage than any previous trip. I added shrimp, misc fish, topside, and artistic nudibranch. See you all tomorrow, peace.

There are so many amazing photos in this trip report I can't really pick out a favorite. Sounds like I have another place I need to convince my wife that we need to visit someday!

Thanks Derek. That was a tough shot to get. But worth the effort of course :)
