      ... rode 2hrs out to our first dive site. Some people just did snorkeling, some people did introduction to scuba diving, some people started their open water PADI scuba certification course and there were a few certified divers like me aboard. I had to pony up $15 to go with a guide for my first dive. I was miffed to find out that with this company, you have to pay an extra $15 for each dive if you want to dive with a ...

      ... to the rest of 'Gus the bus' and Cousin Amber, our high-on-life tour guide, then a bus ride to our first stop of the day, the Babinda Boulders River. After a short bush walk (it was paved and therefore not a raw, stomping on snakes kind of bush walk) we came to a lookout of the river - as the name suggests, it runs over various large and small rocks (see photos) making for a rather scenic area.
