Fish Seen Snorkeling in Fiji

The snorkeling in Fiji was absolutely amazing.  The pictures just don’t do it justice.  The water was very clear and the colors were so vibrant.  I was disappointed when I saw the pictures, but I’m not a pro so they are what they are.  I’m sure with a better camera or a bigger flash you would be able to see all of the color we saw.  The corals went from deep blues to neon purple.  Some of the coral even had brightly lit tips that looked like small fiber optic lighting.

The Scissortail Sergeant fish were everywhere.  You couldn’t take a picture without one of them swimming in front of your camera.  They would bite you too!

Once you reached the main part of the coral reed it would drop about 30 feet and after that was just pure blue water.  The drastic change from rocky coral teeming with fish to nothingness was breath taking.

I couldn’t figure out what this brown-green spotted fish was called.  It blended in well with the rocks, but I scared it out of its hiding place and got this picture.

I should have split these pictures into a few different posts, but I had a lot of trouble figuring out how to insert multiple images and create a gallery.


If you can identify any of these fish, please leave a comment on that picture page or mention the number if commenting on the main page.

Hope you enjoy. =)
