Glad for comfy beds with air conditioning and thick curtains so we could finally be fully-rested! After 10am breakfast we got right into the water right outside our balcony for a couple hours of snorkeling! We can only snorkel here at high tide since the waterline is so close to the coral, so midday is the only option. Even though we timed our water-resistant sunscreen with a break to reapply, we still both burned a bit...but I’ve never seen so many varieties of beautiful fish swimming so close to me even in Hawaii! I ventured as far as 4 huts away but the most fish were right by our own hut since there is a coral “canyon” with more interesting landscape I guess? I was surprised by a jellyfish, and found some bright lavender coral, several bright blue starfish, a few sea cucumbers, and even a couple clownfish. I’m sure you’re not surprised that my favorites were the vivid rainbow fish and the bright neon aqua ones. Too bad the vivid colors don’t show up that well on the GoPro camera. Keep scrolling for some short videos!

We thought we had snorkeled so long that we missed lunchtime, but they called our room to ask and said we could still come to the restaurant. How nice! Snorkeling in the sunshine is tiring, so we rested before our dinner at a special table down by the seashore. It was a lovely view and quite private down the set of stairs, but less breeze than the patio, so we needed the chilled towels they bring ok glass trays! Another delicious dinner, then another relaxing evening at our hut, since we are getting up early for a snorkeling tour at 9am!
