“Richard of York Gave Battle in Vain”
Heard this before? It’s the colors of the rainbow – Red, Orange and Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet – combine these colors with crystal blue warm waters and you’re going to be in for a treat when you go out and discover Reef Diving.
Reef diving usually involves coral and marine life, a camera should be at hand as you are going to see some colors which can only be appreciated properly underwater.
Man and pollution are the main reasons for the coral reefs disappearing from our oceans, hence a lot of conversation about conservation is going on worldwide. If proof was needed that man is one of the main perpetrators of the coral reefs decline, just have to look at the reefs off the Cuban coast. Their corals are not only thriving due to years of inaccessibility from tourism and growth, but actually re-growing and regenerating itself after disease.
The ‘Garden of the Queens’ is a prime example of being able to experience rare species of corals which have survive hundreds of years and apparently in this area can be up to four thousand years old.
