  After diving Pig Island we thought we might check out the other islands in the Five Islands group.  We headed over into the channel between Martin's Islet and Big Island.  There was also a fishing boat there.  As we pulled up to check out the area and have a cuppa soup we saw a seal on the water.  It came over to our boat and swam around under it for a few seconds.  An opportunity - we put on mask, snorkel and fins, grabbed our cameras and went off to try to get pics of the seal.  Alas it had disappeared.  So we found a sheltered spot SE of Big Island and had our cuppa soups.  The North of Martin Islet was too rough to dive so we found a spot to the SE just off the channel.  There was a large bommie here that we explored. The current was very strong so we did not venture too far away.  The seal did come back briefly - Wayne managed a pic of it.  We also saw a very large black stingray  (Dasyatis thetidis), drifting slowly past.  It was accompanied by a number of small white fish on it's back.  I swam with it for a while.  It was not concerned about my presence.
