Negril is famous for it's beach, it's nightlife and notorious for hotels like Hedonism. But, amoungst the world's diving fraternity, it is also famous for excellent diving. We didn't misss out on this opportunity and took several dives during our stay. Peter even used the vacation to get his diving licence. 

Armed with our PADI's, rented air and an underwater camera, the honeymoon posse dove together to get an alternative photo collection from Negril.

Charlie the Sting Ray

 
  Undoubtedly the highlight of diving in Negril was our final dive at Charlies point in Orange Bay (a close second was pulling moonies underwater to the silent mirth of your buddies). This dive is named after Charlie, the friendly sting ray who accompanies most dives. We were lucky enough to have Charlie escourt our dive for it's full fourty minutes. Charlie is so tame, that most of us had the chance to stroke him as he gracefully swam by at arms length looking for attention. If you don't believe me, look at the photos below: Chalie brushed the camera on this shot!
 
     
     
 
 
Spot the difference: one is a primative mammal with a flat head and a barbed tail, the other is a fish.
