A travel blog entry by darrenniki

... and given a brief on all the equipment we would be using. We were group 4 for doing our scuba dive so first up was an hour or so of snorkelling around the Reef, we geared up (mask, snorkel, buoyancy vest and flippers) and jumped off the side of the boat into the water!

We ...
