We had hoped to go diving twice during our stay, but the hurricane made that impossible. We got out only once, the day before the storm. We brought only one camera, so all the photos are Paul's. The juvenile lionfish, only about 2" long, is the first one we have seen in the Caribbean. As an invasive species, they are impossible to eradicate now.
