Two Snorkels at the Indians near Norman Island

One of our favorite snorkeling spots in the Caribbean has to be The Indians at Norman Island in the BVI. These pinnacles display coral, sponges, and sea fans with schools of reef fish of all descriptions. The sunshine was filtering in and out of the cloud cover for these two snorkeling sessions. It seemed when the sunshine came out, that we were swimming inside an aquarium. The queen angelfish is always a treat. A dog snapper was probably the largest fish in the area. There were schools of sergeant majors, blue tangs, yellow snappers, and a six-inch blue fish with a black nose/mouth. We saw 30 species just in this localized area. Visibility was 50-60', so we could see lots of detail. I would hover over a particular coral section just to watch the interaction of 5 or 6 species, adults, juveniles, and so on.
