Here are some pictures I took while snorkeling Komandoo Maldives.

My husband and I have been visiting the Maldives since 2001. We have stayed at a number of different resorts but our favorite is Komandoo. This year (2023) was our 10th visit to the island.

When my husband dives I snorkel on the magnificent house reef. I have photographed many different types of fish (113 this year) and have watched some interesting behavior, including a moray eel hunting with a lyre-tailed coral grouper.
