3-29-2016 Sailing and snorkeling at Caye Caulker

We got up early and went around the corner for a nice cheap breakfast

Luckily we got the only table

We departed for our full day sailing/snorkeling trip from Ragamuffin Tours. They have a few sailboats anchored and it is a
short sail to the snorkeling grounds.
The water was very blue and we relaxed on the way to the snorkeling grounds.

You can ride on the front or top or get some shade.  It was a fun trip.

Our first stop was an area of the reef known as Coral Gardens. You can barely see a blue fish with spots poking out in the
middle of the photo - that is a juvenile Yellowtail Damselfish, and it's electric blue in person!

Southern stingray at Shark Ray Alley

Here is a GoPro video from Shark Ray Alley:

Blue Angelfish at the Hol Chan Cut (a narrow channel where you can get outside the reef).

This sea urchin would cling to your fingers - you could feel when it sucked onto you.

Here we saw a giant Spotted Eagle Ray, and the guide took the GoPro for a video:

We finally got to see a green sea turtle just before getting back on the boat.

Here is a short video of the turtle:

Our captain and guide, Kevin, was really funny and had a lot to talk about.

That night we went out to a nice restaurant and ate fresh fish

Zora was very happy!
