When I saw the divers approach we carried on because I knew the divers would probably scare them off. 2 minutes later we reached the shark cave ...

It was a nice change of pace from surfing and other activities to cruise in a boat keeping an eye out for anything we might see. We saw some blue herons as we went along. For part of the trip we got out of the boat and actually went into the forest areas to try to find the monkeys. After ...
