We took a trip to the reef with a friendly guide named Lucky who grew up down the coast. For him the water, and the reef, have been his life. His enthusiasm was clear, as was his knowledge. Our group was small but diverse and includes a younger kid, an adult (me) who had never snorkeled before, and two more seasoned snorkelers. Lucky made us all feel comfortable and included. We dropped twice, for about 40 mins each time. We saw all kids of fish, amazing corals, barracudas, and we tracked behind two big stingrays for a long while. At one point we ran into another group taking selfies at the surface and Lucky reminded them how lucky they were to be there, and that they should be looking and learning instead. We had some laughs in the boat on the ride home and Lucky answered all the questions we could throw at him about aquatic life, the reef, and the area. An unforgettable day on the water!
