The very last dive of the trip on Northern Arch was simply mind boggling. There were stingrays all over the site.


It was basically impossible to take a picture without stingrays in it. It was absolutely joyous following them around. More than once I'd be focused on a stingray in front of me and I'd turn my head and see more stingray a metre or two away from me.


As the boat was leaving Poor Knights Islands, we got an amazing send off by a flock of shearwater birds flying along with the boat. A fitting end to an incredible trip.
