Out to 'Opal' Reef from Port Douglas using Calypso divers. We decided to go out from Port Douglas instead of the larger tourist boats from Cairns.

this is Cairns Marina taken from outside our hostel


our first dive team about 9m deep ... pictures taken using a cheap $35 camera (as you can see !)


it does not pick up the coral very clearly


boat trip took about 1.5 hrs out to the reef and it was a little rough at times , winds were about 15-20 knots


who is that in front ??


its scubbie tiff .....


like a natural


we went to 18.1m on the first dive , then 16m on our second dive


uh oh ... tiff's spotted a great white ...


great white maybe ... but not a shark !!


paul giving tiff the ok , another great dive trip. We managed to see one reef shark , two turtles , large parrot fish , clown fish , sea cucumbers (which you cannot eat) , a baramundi Cod , and walls of coral.
