As soon as I slipped off the dinghy into the water the first time, I spotted a sea turtle. We have seen many sea turtles around our boat at almost every anchorage around Madagascar. The coral was a good healthy and colorful variety with both hard and soft coral, and I even found an anemone with one lone clown fish (but, there must be more). There were a nice variety of clams including large ones of almost giant clam size. And, finally I spotted a blue-spotted stingray hiding in the shadows under a coral.
