The Rip is a marine protected area that allows no fishing or poaching of shells or coral. The fish here are not very shy of humans, and so you have the chance to observe grouper and other fish absent from most locations. They are attracted to the feeding possibilities brought by the currents. Frequently seen here are larger fish such as grouper, titan triggerfish, shark, napoleon wrasse, jacks, and sweetlips. And, the usual collection of smaller reef fish. One thing we did not see were any anemone or clownfish.
Although we previously shared a few underwater photos, I wanted to share a larger album of photos from The Rip. Make sure to click on the larger version below:
