We had an early roll call of 6:00 am today--grabbed a quick bite at the buffet and then headed off to our meeting point for our tour. The ship was anchored about five miles offshore and we had to take the tender to get to our bus that would take us to our cave tubing.

The main road was just a single carriage way, full of pot holes and speed bumps, so it was impossible to get up any speed.
