The dive started and ended with a large group (shoal, school or squad) of small Caribbean Reef Squid greeting the divers from the dive boat. The divers spotted the squid from the boat and couldn’t wait to jump in the water before they swam away. We were not disappointed as the squid stayed put and let me fire off a few shots. Unfortunately the dive needed to continue so I had to follow the group and leave my new friends.
The remainder of the dive was great, but not as exciting as the start of the dive. So as we prepared to exit the water, the squid returned. I was elated. Fortunately I had plenty of air and as able to spend additional time firing off shots. One of the squid was either more friendly or more curious than the others in his group and let me approach him. Below are some of my shots and my new friend “Squishy”.
