Pics of the Great Astrolabe Reef!

We’re having a great time snorkeling the passes of Kadavu’s beautiful barrier reef in glorious, calm summer weather :-)

The Great Astrolabe Reef is great indeed!!

The coral inside the lagoon of Kadavu and its northern islands is mediocre, so we didn't have high expectations for the famous barrier reef that stretches out about 60 nm from the northern tip of the lagoon, along the east side and down the southern side of Kadavu. But it's mindboggling: a great variety of healthy coral and tons and tons of fishies!! We used the calm summer weather to anchor on the outer reef and enjoy the passes.
