Moonlit morning, easy jog on sandy jungle trails. A feral rooster's pre-dawn crow as anglers go their way. Quiet breakfast, fresh croissants, to each one's own desire. Structures, colors, vibrant reefs, good-natured watchful crew. New fish to see, fresh fish to eat, fish stories at the bar. Hatchling turtle nightlife, too, how fortunate we are!

Surely there is no better place on earth! Massive GT's, Dogtooth Tuna, Bonefish aplenty, Wahoo etc. We swam with turtles, watched them being born, saw dozens of massive Rays (and swam with them), snorkeled the most incredible reefs etc. There was so much to do and we were treated like royalty at every turn...
