Day 18 - A monster sea battle with Bruce.

I decided to man up and go into the cage first meaning I was on the end, so had two angles of looking at the sharks. Terrifying.

We also saw a hammerhead, tons of jellyfish, dolphins, and a bunch of little fish. I can check that off the bucket list! Thanks go to Tim for having the underwater camera.

... and I manage to get a nice photo of a greater double collared sunbird and a malachite sunbird.

The next morning, Brenda has to go to work.....shark dives going out today! But, she suggests a nice raft cruise along the at 6:00 am Jorge and I board the "River Rat" pontoon boat for a cruise.
