The Great Barrier Reef / MASA
A pair of Humpback Whale came close to our boat, probably a mum and kid. The child showed off its performances to us several times. They swam about 20m away from our boat and looked like heading south. It could be the last encounter with Humpback Whales this year.

I am catching up reporting about previous dive trips. Here on in September, the air and water temperatures are slightly going up.

We congratulated to a new PADI Openwater Diver and some introductory divers tried multiple dives during this trip.

We spotted dolphins on the way to go to the reef. Under water, there were many kind of idols like Green Seaturtle, Hawksbill Turtle, Whitetip Reefshark, Maori Wrasse, Bumphead Parrrotfish, Giant Trevally, Bluespotted Stingray, 5 Anemonefish varieties and Painted Spiny Lobster.

28&29/6/12 GBR trip: A huge stingray
The Great Barrier Reef / MASA
We saw a mega size stingray in this GBR trip. There are usually Brue-spotted Stingray, but this one was different and we hardly identified what it was. The shape looked like Red Stingray or Cow Stingray and the disc size was about 1m.

It stayed still in a hole, so I couldn't take a picture of the whole figure of it.
