This post is part 2 of the fish and coral in Jinek Bay Marine Reserve that is located on Lifou Island in New Caledonia. In my part 1 post I included photos of 18 fish species and 6 coral species. In this post I have included 19 fish species, 2 coral species and photos of two different giant clams.

  1. Wow; Doug! Just when I thought I saw Jinek Bay M. R. (from Part 1) . . . here we go again! What beautiful fish, coral, and clams! Exquisite colors and dazzling diversity. I am so thankful you are chronicling your adventures of these and others places. All of us who enjoy seeing these pics are inspired and motivated to be more mindful of the world we live in, and hopefully, the Creator that loves His creation so much.

    I believe I asked before if I could share your website with others. I hope to be sharing it with many more, assuming that’s okay with you. 🙂

    Take care my friend. Happy Snorkeling!

    1. Chet, I am glad that you are inspired by my posts because that is one of my purposes of this blog and website. This world is amazing and I my passion to see more of it is never quenched. Snorkeling is probably my favorite activity. I will be sharing more of my snorkeling trips that will feature different species of fish and other sea creatures.

      Please share this website with anyone.
