Typical Snorkeling Boat - Ours Atypical, Only 4 of Us

Bon Getting Soaked As We Head Out to Barrier Reef

Day trip snorkeling ($40 USea) 4 stops on 2nd longest barrier reef (after Australia) in world plus visit to major tourist town of San Pedro on Ambergues Caye 30 min away by boat.

Saw nurse sharks, spotted wray, huge black grouper, Nassau grouper, green morey eel, turtles, hogfish, sargent majors, tarpin, mullet, and the big/small solitary & schooling reef fish. It was windy but w/ just 3 of us snorkeling our time in the water was as much as hoped. Still not to the level of Apo Is.(Philippeans) or Red Sea (Dahab) or Bahamas 25 years ago. We talked about it afterwards and decided that much of what might have been there must have been destroyed by the recent hurricans. The bottom in many places was almost scoured, not any real coral to speak of.
