Some pictures from today’s snorkel at North Barren Island

Today we went on the snorkel of a lifetime. Or perhaps it was just Palmyra’s way of saying goodbye, as this was also our last snorkel of the trip. I followed a couple of juvenile blacktip reef sharks around the reef, was circled by a curious turtle, and was blown away by the number and diversity of fish I observed. Despite being damaged by coral bleaching last year, this reef is incredibly resilient and is now on its way to recovery. Absolutely amazing!
