Snorkeling again!!

September and early October are by far the best months to snorkel on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica.  We try to go whenever we can and are getting better and better at taking pictures of the fish and the reef.  Here are a few from yesterday……………..

Camouflage fish  This fish is camouflaged by the sand but you can see it in the lower left hand corner of the picture.

Camouflage fish 2  Same fish but barley there.  It is in the center of the picture – note the two eyes.

Camouflage fish barely thereHere it is barely perceptible.  It is in the lower center of the picture but very hard to see. 

Blue fish at Uva 2Pretty blue fish – these are all over in varying sizes.

Yellow and white fishYellow striped fish

Squid  A squid – the water was a bit cloudy here but I watched about six of these just meandering about the area.  The photo doesn’t do it justice – they were a mixture of fluorescent colors.  Very cool!!

Yellow fish  A tiny yellow fish – I haven’t seen much bigger than this.

  1. That’s the trouble with underwater photos, the water filters the colors. I wonder if you can get a flash working under there. The squid picture is awesome! I hope we can visit again during Sean’s upcoming school break, but he may have other ideas. ;^)

    Are you snorkeling at the reef by the Arrecife hotel?

    • Casey – I am going to try taking an underwater flashlight next time to see if that helps. And yes – it on the beach south or Arrecife. You can just step off the beach and the reefs are right there. It would be great to see you all again – just let me know if you decide to head our way!!
