The tropical coral reefs of Indonesia, specifically Bunaken Marine Park, contain a wide variety or marine life including large soft corals such as this red sea fan, or gorgonian. SCUBA divers travel from all over the world to experience the underwater beauty found here in the south seas.
The large sponges found along the tropical reefs of Bunaken Marine Park come in a variety of amazing shapes and sizes. This large marine invertebrate was bigger than me! The warm colors contrast nicely with the deep blue colors of the Indonesian waters.
The mix of soft corals, hard corals, large sponges, and a variety of other marine life made my SCUBA diving trip to Indonesia a memorable one. The warm, blue tropical waters of the South Pacific mixed with amazing underwater beauty will ensure my return trip.
