The day was dedicated to being on a boat, a catamaran to be exact. You know those boats with two hulls in the water and like flat top for you to lay out on. They are awesome. Fast and nimble, they got us to the first snorkel site in under an hour (getting out of the marina was slow). It was plenty of time for us to look for dolphins that usually swim alongside the hulls. Unfortunately, we didn’t see any. I’d recommend going early morning. Last time we did this, there were plenty that came along. This includes sea turtles. The earlier the better. But today, on both of our snorkeling sites, we only had fish, albeit lots of fish. But we kinda expected that. So the next best thing to do was to snorkel down to the coral, check out the scene, and spot some amazing looking uni. Man, if it were legal for us to take them on board to eat, I’d be in foodie heaven. Even without the grand sightings, we still had a relaxing time on the boat. After snorkeling twice, forty five minutes each, then having lunch, it was nap time. Under the sun cooled by the breeze, we rode back to the docks before sunset.

On the way back we stopped off at the outlets and had some dinner. We kept it light to try an offset the week of heavy eating. Thank goodness. All this physical activity and I’m still gaining weight. That’s a vacation for ya! Not to mention we went drinking later.

Verdict: I’ll be back even to try out the food too.
