The Most Unique Dive In The World

This photo was taken in the ocean, believe it or not. See the jungle above the water?? Is that cool or what??

This dive is called, "The Passage", and it is the most unique dive in the world in my opinion. There are all of these mushroom type, limestone islands scattered around the islands of Raja Ampat. The ocean rips in and around these islands like a river. The current is very strong, but you just glide along the sides, and then duck into protected bays...there are huge fan corals right next to the surface, and you look up and see the jungle above....

Very wild stuff...

Totally unreal and a tiny bit cooler than the freakin' Highway, that I'm staring at right now. ;)

Great job!

Scotty, this photo is phenomenal! I love the color of the coral, and the sun rays are awesome, & is that little fishies swimming in the top right or bubbles? No matter, it's great!
