    Lovely day out on the calm water. Indigenous guide was very informative, explaining many local customs to us. Beautiful little, deserted islands visited. Didn’t see much sea life, but they do what they want when you want. I thought snorkel gear must be on the boat but you need to request it at check in office so do that if you want to snorkel.
