This morning a few coworkers and I went on another FAM (familiarization) tour. You know, the tours we get to do for free as long as we write a report. This one was a dolphin watch and snorkel tour.
We had to get there bright and early at 7:15am. Good thing I'm a morning person! It was down on the coast (obviously) on the south western corner of the island. We boarded the ship at 8am and soon after, we were on our way! The first leg brought us up the western coast of the island. It was so beautiful!
This was the dolphin watch part, but we actually didn't see any dolphins! It was a nice sail though, where we lounged around, chatted and had a few drinks. After about an hour we stopped at our first snorkel part. It's a great place with tons of corals and a bazillion fish. They gave us fish food and the fishies chased us around.
Our second spot was a "turtle cleaning station," where turtles stop to get their shells cleaned off by these little fish. There were so many fish there too and these guys wanted to chase me even more than the other guys. I saw 4 turtles too!!
And yeah, we did end up seeing spinner dolphins. Soooo cool. I love these guys!
To top off our little trip, we boated around the marina to see this ship at the end. Recognize it? From a certain series of movies, recently having come out with their fourth installment? ;);)
It was a great trip! We snorkeled, saw dolphins, turtles and tons of fish, and just had a good time with coworkers. It was a nice trip - one of the perks of this job that I'll definitely miss. I won't miss it that bad though.
Most of these photos were taken by the tour photographer, Ali. She did a great job!
PS: Show up tomorrow for my book giveaway!
