At 830am we set off with a wildlife friendly guide to do some snorkelling out by the reefs.
First stop SHARK AND RAY ALLEY.
I was completely amazed when he stopped the boat about a dozen Nurse Sharks were around the boat at the surface, some of them 2 metres in length. We jumped into the water and swam looking down at sharks, large Atlantic Ray's, tuna fish and other huge blue fish.
Second stop we swam with a large loggerhead turtle and saw thousands of conch shells on the sea floor.
Third stop was The channel which as it states is a channel between the reef allowing boats and such to pass through. But it also houses an amazing array of marine life, from hundreds of colourful fish and Ray's to Moray eels. I did some free diving to about 5-6 metres checking out the marine life close up. Simply amazing.
The last stop was a 60 year old barge ship wreck, with holes in the hull and coral growing off the deck. We both free dived down and could peer into the rusty boat. The water was very choppy and there was quite a tide so we got back onto the boat after about ten minutes.
At lunch we chomped down some 3 dollar veggie burritos sat in the shade on the beach sharing some with a lush dog. Then a Caribbean man on a pedal cart taught us the way of THE BANANA CAKE omg it was the best thing I have ever tasted. We ended up gobbling two large chunks between us.
