You can call me Ray…
One of the great things about living on a boat is the abundance of wildlife that literally lives right under our home. One of our favorite activities is exploring this underwater realm. While divers may be able to visit depths that we can not, there is much to be seen with only a mask, snorkel and a pair of fins. Take for instance the rays shown in the pics below. While anchored in a secluded bay in the BVI, I found 4 of these guys hanging out under our boat.
Later, as me moved One Love to a popular dive/snorkel site, we found the giant ray shown below gliding along amongst the coral. He is definitely the largest ray that we have seen in the Caribbean!
While snorkeling, we were pleased to find an even more rare underwater species, the boatpolus dropus. We retrieved this creature from the water and returned him to his natural habitat, on board a boat. Just last evening we found out that our friends are in need of such a creature so we will be passing him along to them later today.
