... the ship. We then had a safety drill, followed by some free time before our briefing for the following days activities. We were introduced to the crew and then had canapés and cocktail with the captain before tea was served.

After lunch and rest time (I'm really not needing all this down time), we went for another snorkel at Sullivan's Bay. We saw two sharks, a sea lion, many star fish and again lots of fish.
