Our very good friend Nick Filmalter is certainly living the dream. He’s just spent a bit a time diving (and fishing a bit) around Farquhar. These are a few photos that he was ‘kind’ enough to send. They’re all taken from the yacht’s microlite.

Enjoy the day dreaming – I know I have been!

All photos thanks James Loudon.

    Is that a large bone in front of the GT?
    Great pics, this seems like the best spot in the world.

      Jasper, the dark fish is a GT. Top left of the Geet is another fish but not sure what it is… Just imagine 🙂
