Hopkins ... A Big Day Out Snorkeling

We made the decision to be tourists again for a day, at $65 US for the day it was spendie but Ellen really wanted to go.

Setting off for a 40 minute boat ride before hitting the first reef the day was warming up very fast.

After snorkeling for 2 hours we stopped for a break on an island which was stunning.

Leaving lunch we did another reef, we were lucky enough to see some sharks, barracuda, stingrays and an assortment of glamorously coloured topical fish.

I really can’t talk it up any better other than to say of all the snorkeling I have done in Oz, New Caledonia, Hawaii, Fiji etc this kicks there arse hands down.

Just a few photos, not very good with our small camera but you get the picture.
