I have lost count how many times l have dived the cement pier dive just north of Speightstown, Barbados and each time it always delivers. I always see a seahorse, at least one but as many as 14 on one dive once, which was a record!
This is a rare photo of me taken by my buddy Henri, an accomplished underwater photographer in her own right. You can see a pillar encrusted with different colours of sponges which is very common on most of the pillars here. They vary in size and colour and sometimes one pillar can have a whole rainbow of colours. The sponges attract other marine life like shrimps, balloon fish, puffer fish, crabs and seahorses even.
You can also see a feather duster which is a type of tube worm, it’s just above where my wetsuit says Oceanic. There are many all over the reefs and wrecks of Barbados and wonderful to photograph. I look a bit surprised but l’m not it’s just the mask making my eyes look big and wide 🙂
