We’re so close to the Equator you could almost touch it...well the same could be almost said about the Sea Turtles we snorkelled with today! Following my earlier dive adventures across at Daphne and Beagle islands I thought I’d seen it all but Isabella true to form held a few of her secrets back. This morning, less than a stone’s throw from where we’ve been staying we were treated to a snorkelling experience like no other which included a sea turtle cleaning station, a school of eagle rays, stingrays, sea lions, blue starfish, a huge puffer fish, coral and countless brightly coloured tropical fish. What a way to start the day!
Ahh the perils of neophrene! Bless him (an American we shared the boat with) as it was his first time wearing a wet suit but perhaps it should have come with some instructions! Now my mum has always told me never to laugh at someone else’s expense. Wise words id say, but when our struggling guest, in the process of extricating himself from his wet suit ended up clouting himself I couldn’t but help smile as most of us divers have made that same schoolboy error...call it a rite of passage my son!
