For the last couple weeks we’ve been sharing a few videos of our time coral-scouting and coral farming in the Solomon Islands and for this week’s video we go deeper into this part of the Coral Triangle. After a short stint in Guadalcanal we headed to Central Provinces to get ourselves to even more remote coral reefs.
As before, we test the waters with an exploratory snorkel to gather intelligence about what corals occur at our newest point of interest, Nugu Beach on Sandfly Island. This is a place we’ve actually visited before but had previously only explored a completely different part of the reef slope.
This quick swim is a tantalizing preview to the reef community that calls this lagoon home, with some very notable corals including plenty of Acro Millies, Purple stags, blue bottle brush and blue Anacropora. If you like the snorkel video of this particular reef definitely stay tuned because in the next video we’ll be actually diving this reef going deeper and getting closer to the corals, clams and fish we came here to see.
