It’s been a little over three months since we first arrived in Aruba. Together, Leslie and I have logged over 100 dives and are constantly amazed by the diversity and amount of sea life this island has to offer.

We also saw more than a few drumfish, six lobsters, too many damselfish to count, trumpetfish and lots more.

So far, I have created a few “Best of…” videos which highlight some of the more spectacular creatures and interactions we have been able to capture. I certainly don’t want to discount today’s video, but I do want to share the abundance of sea life we typically see on an average dive. Check it out and let us know what you think!
