Tasmania and Sea Dragons!

In Uncategorized on June 3, 2016 at 5:41 am

Well I’ve been out here in the South Pacific on the Carnival Spirit for quite a while now. Something I was SUPER excited about when I found out I was coming out here is the chance to do some scuba diving in some of the most legendary dive sites in the world. The South Pacific is home to coral reefs (hellooooooo Great Barrier Reef), unique animals, and beautiful scenery both above and below the water. 

In fact there are some delightful sea creatures that you can ONLY see in certain parts of Australia. When we called to Tasmania, I was fortunate to get to do some diving, and saw not one but two sea dragons!! Sea dragons are native to the waters off of south and east Australia. They are most closely related to seahorses and pipefish, and they are SO COOL!!! They have beautiful leaf-like appendages all over their bodies which helps them blend in with the seaweed and kelp they live amongst. They are truly majestic creatures, cruising around kelp forests just being awesome. I’m so thrilled I was able to catch a glimpse of these beautiful under sea treasures, and managed to even get a few pictures! 

I have been so fortunate to spend some time in various ports of call out here and I will definitely be sharing more of my experiences with you!!
