We went for an all day boat cruise with Ras Creek off of Caye Caulker, Belize on Monday and had a chance to wear full face snorkel mask and swim with the stingrays among the coral. It was AMAZING! I don’t own a waterproof camera, but Brandon (the groom whose wedding we were here to photograph) was nice enough to loan me his for a bit and these are the photos I took. It was hard to get photos under water – it has such a high salt content, you are super buoyant! This is where my shooting “from the hip” skills really came in handy!
We were so grateful that Melissa, Brandon & their family and friends included us on their adventures this week – it has been so much fun for Elaine & me!
It was so cool going out with Ras Creek because back in the early 1990s he was the one to develop Stingray Alley – going out there to teach about nature to the tourists and giving people a better appreciation of the world around him. Normally you can see nurse sharks there too, but it is mating season so they were off doing their thing. *wink*
We even saw a lobster while we were out there – if you look just below the rock, you can see it peeking out from there!
