Turtle & Passengers

An imposing Green Turtle crosses the Red Sea with a pair of Remora stuck to its belly. Their relationship is mutually beneficial: the remoras remove parasites from the turtle and in return get to feed on the host's faeces.

Once abundant, Oceanic White Tip Sharks are now an endangered species due to over-fishing. Egypt is one of the few places in the world where divers can regularly see these majestic creatures.

I was astonished by how clingy this Wrasse was!

Oceanic White Tip Sharks are notoriously curious and will come by for a close inspection of divers. Sadly this quality has led to millions becoming by-catch due to long-line fishing.

A friendly Masked Pufferfish feels comfortable enough in my presence to show its big white belly.

Oceanic White Tip Sharks are often accompanied Pilot Fish. The relationship is mutually beneficial with the Pilot Fish eating parasites off the shark's body whilst the White Tip protects them from predators.

Most of the time cuttlefish cruise around using their mantle (the skirt around their body), but when they want to turn on the jets, they use their siphon to blast off at speed.

Butterfly Fish can usually be found in pairs and I spent a long time just hanging out with this colourful couple.

Oceanic White Tips have enormous pectoral and dorsal fins. This makes them particularly vulnerable to the shark fin trade.
