Bell Point Snorkel

Snorkeling out towards Bell Point amongst the large rocks along the shore and nearby grassy areas, I encountered a number of interesting creatures and some nice views of Creole Rock. In addition to the species pictured below, highlights included a close encounter with a spotted eagle ray and a night sergeant (Abudefduf taurus) the larger, duskier relative of the very common sergeant major. Although the area boasts only a scattered of small corals, it was abundant in the shallow water variation of the yellow tube sponge, which is my favorite sponge because they look like fairy castles.
