      hi Amanda.. 🙂 most of the corals nearby the coral island are dead, probably due to natural process or global warming.. may be there are still a lot of life corals in the deep sea.. the corals in the photo, including the dead one, are located about 8-12 meters from the water surface, so it is unlikely for anyone to step on them during snorkeling.. 🙂

    HI, awesome pics! Am planning a trip there next month. Just wanna know, your waterproof camera, it can be used directly in the waters? Or you need to get a special “waterproof” casing for it?

      hi Celyn.. 🙂
      ya, the camera can be used directly in the water without any casing, but not more than 10 meter from the surface of the water.. if you wish to go deeper than you need a casing.. 🙂
      enjoy your holiday ya.. 🙂
