... in the area understand tours, it mostly came off as a sales pitch. The interesting parts were the games designed as an icebreaker, and the job talk. Neither really functioned properly for me. For whatever reason I was feeling pretty antisocial tonight and wasn't really in the mood. Still, as the night went on I lightened up a touch. And with good reason, I won us a raffle for a 2 for 1 trip to Cape Tribulation. Next up we went to the tour ...

You were equipped with mask, fins and snorkel, but you had to pay extra for the stinger suit (sadly not pink this time although equally unflattering), which I complained about, as they banged on about how there may be heaps of stingers where we were going to be snorkelling today and that we should rent a stinger suit... So why not give us them for free then if it's so dangerous? Being ...
