A magic moment on the reef today So lucky to have Bottlenose dolphins visit us during both of our scuba dives! They were so inquisitive and playful - what a dream! #bottlenosedolphin #dolphins #scubadive #dive #greatbarrierreef #southerngreatbarrierreef #masterreefguides #marinelife #ladyelliot...
When its time for a rest, its time for a rest! Even if that means laying down on some pretty spiky branching coral Stunning conditions out here today on Lady Elliot Island #greenturtle #greatbarrierreef #snorkel #fish #sunlight #marinebiology #padi #southerngreatbarrierreef #ocean #deepblue #co...
The last day of winter! My absolute favourite season on the reef with Manta Rays everywhere and Humpback Whales constantly serenading you #mantarays #humpbackwhale #greatbarrierreef #marinelife #rays #snorkel #thisisqueensland #islandlife #ladyelliotisland
An unforgettable morning at Rasdhoo atoll surrounded by Grey reef sharks It was great to hear that this is one of the marine protected areas in the Maldives and the wildlife here was flourishing! #greyreefsharks #sharks #scubadive #dive #ssi #maldives #divewithhilton #amingiristory #hiltonamingi...
I can tick this one off the bucket list! Today I snorkelled with a beautiful five metre Whale Shark named Shaiban #337 My favourite part of this encounter was watching him slowly descend into the deep while I peered down from the surface. The visibility was incredible at around 30m! #whaleshark...
Hungry Hawksbill I have been seeing so many Hawksbill turtles here in the Maldives! I came across this one on the house reef of Ithaafushi happily searching for food amongst the coral rubble surrounded by beautiful reef fish #maldives #waldorfastoria #waldorfmoments #waldorfastoriamaldives #tur...
Snorkelling with dolphins One of the local guides mentioned a pod of dolphins was often sighted in a lagoon around 40 minutes from the resort, so off we went in search of them! The pod was pretty big and composed of around 60 very chatty dolphins How about the little twist/dance at the end #hil...
Day 1 spent with Nurse sharks, Blacktip reef sharks and stingrays! Currently exploring the Maldives with @hiltonmaldives and @suboceanic.hiltonmaldives - its nothing short of mind blowing #maldives #hiltonmaldives #suboceanic #sharks #nursesharks #stingray #snorkel #gopro #goproanz
Mystical manta rays Late afternoon snorkels with these gentle giants feeding on plankton at the surface #wildlife #natgeoau #underwaterlife #naturephoto #underwater #sea #ocean #abcmyphoto #mantaray #greatbarrierreef #snorkel #freedive #cressi1946
Fish trapped inside a jellyfish!? This juvenile fish looks to be using a jellyfish as protection from predators and has probably overstayed its welcome, outgrowing the jellyfish! It doesnt look like the jellyfish has much say in where its going on the reef #wildlife #natgeoau #underwaterlife #na...
Dont worry, I got this! Another Turtle Season done and dusted! So many special moments this season including watching this Loggerhead hatchling make it to the water at Mon Repos with @queensland #loggerhead #turtle #babyturtle #coral #beach #reptile #closeup #loggerheadturtle #newlife #babyanimals
Love or war? Two venomous Scorpionfish attempt to settle a disagreement, minus the sharp spines on their backs #scorpionfish #fish #coralreef #sealife #gopro #underwater #marinebiology #greatbarrierreef #discover #explore
