journaling: We enjoy going to the public beaches for snorkeling when the waters are clear and calm. We decided to try one of the snorkeling cruises to see if it was worth the money and effort. It was nice to have knowledgeable people around; at times they swam with us and identified the different fish, sea urchins, coral and eel. What you don't expect is the crackling sound, which is the shrimp eating the coral. Our underwater pictures proved to be very challenging, even with diving down and getting closer to the moving subjects. Jim was able to get close enough to the turtle under the rock to snap a picture - they are such majestic creatures.
