A Few Dive Photos

Posted by jlwile on December 14, 2009

Even though I don’t typically blog on things like this, the dives I had in the Caribbean were amazing, so I have to show some pictures. The best one, by far, was the dive in Tortola, where I got to examine the wreck of the Rhone. The ship sank in 1867, and the remains are awesome! Here, for example, is the tip of the bow:

Here are the remains of the “crows nest” that was on top of the mast:

And the remains of one of the boilers used to drive the steam engine:

There was even a section of tile floor that was still intact and not completely overtaken by coral:

While the Rhone was by far my favorite dive (it actually took two dives to see it all), my favorite pictures are as follows. First, the “serious side” of a spotted moray eel:

and these wonderful red-and-white shrimp:

All in all, it was a great set of dives!
