We were looking forward to this as I'm a big geology nerd and knowing this is the only place on earth where you can snorkel between two continental plates I had to do it even though I'm a cold water wuss. I would say the...More
The snorkeling trip was an amazing once in a Lifetime experience! Even in September we didn't get cold at all thanks to the dry suit.
