Belize trip 2005: Snorkelling around Glover's Reef Atoll

Glover's Reef Atoll has hundreds of small patch reefs inside, and very good coral growing outside. We went snorkelling from shore on Southwest Cay, after short kayak trips into the atoll, from the kayaks outside the atoll, and from shore at the marine research station on Middle Cay.

I had bought an underwater housing for my camera on Ebay. I have mixed feelings about underwater photos: they never look nearly as good as the real thing unless you have fantastic lighting, equipment, and luck. Most of my photos ended up being fairly boring blue blurs.
