John Pennekamp Coral Reef

We visited the John Pennekamp Coral Reef - by glassbottom boat. The coral reef is the 3rd largest coral barrier reef in the world.

Me and the captain! He brought us savely to the edge of the Bermuda Triangle (at least they told us) and back again.

Enjoying our boat trip out to the reef on the sundeck.

The glassbottom of the boat.

A huge brain coral. They told us it is at least 750 years old.
The biggest fish we saw (It is really hard to takepictures on the boat - next time we go with an underwater camera ;-) We learned about the parrot fish - They eat coral rock and after they digested this it becomes sand - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parrot_fish
