Roi Dive Photos

Here is a selection of more dive photos from Roi this past weekend. I had a really great time up there and saw a lot of cool stuff. I went on 5 dives, including oceanside Roi (where all the sharks were at), the Eiko Maru (known by the locals as 1st Ship, a Japanese ship from WWII), a reef dive off of 8th Island, the airplane graveyard (collection of American WWII planes discarded after the war), and a C-46 (cargo plane also from WWII times). As always, you may click to enlarge the photos.

Large brain coral

There were several clownfish hiding in an anemone growing in this coral

Giant Clam (just over a foot long)

Airplane graveyard

Look between the tail of the plane and a coral head to the left, and you'll see one of a few spotted eagle rays we saw this weekend
