What I did
The boat takes us out to sea. There are about 15 on our boat and it takes about 20 min to get to our first stop. Its a stretch of beach inhabited by monkeys. We park up then hop off for photos, the monkeys have no fear and are obviously well used to visitors. They eat bananas, play in the trees and pose for photos (the monkeys, not the visitors). A lovely unexpected bonus :)
Next stop is for a snorkel in a little cove with limestone cliffs
It is Ian's first time snorkelling and Anna holds his hand again as he splashes about, trying not to drown, while he gets his mask on. The fish are everywhere and the water so clear its as if you are looking at a fishtank. There are many different shapes, sizes and colours, and the more curious ones swim right up to your mask to get a closer look. We swim about for awhile and then its all aboard again for a doughnut and a slice of pineapple (complimentary and very tasty).
By the time we reach the next snorkelling spot, further round the island, the sun has become hidden by clouds and the tempurature is beginning to drop. Anna stays on board this time while Ian has another quick look at the fish and stuff. By the time everyone is back on board its become a bit chilly and there is no sun to be seen anymore. Abandoning the final leg to see the sunset we head off home feeling satisfied and tired after a day of adventure and looking at suff.
