Underwater fun at Ribbon Reef #9 in the Great Barrier Reef. The Ribbon Reef group is at the northern end of the great barrier reef and is part of the outer reef. Go on the other side and the ocean floor drops a couple of kilometers! This is my second snorkelling outing in the reef and the first that I took my GoPro. I extracted a still image from a video file and it actually did quite a nice job! The water was quite choppy on the surface but once you put your face it, you hardly notice it! This is a giant clam - beautiful creatures! I wish I had gotten more photos of them! These are protected animals - harm them and you're hit with a good sized fine. It was a great four day cruise of the northern reef with Coral Princess!
