Notes

In image provided several sighting occurred, in addition to the Giant Sting ray (Left) there was also an assortment of reef sharks including Grey Reef Sharks and White tip Reef Sharks (Right). Ignore above picture of white tip reef shark as this is a personal error and am unable to remove it from my sighting.
