After two days of very strong winds gusting to over 24 knots, we were relieved to be able to take our tour guests out today. A word of advice - don't leave sea excursions to the last day of your vacation - if the weather turns difficult, you can miss some favoured attraction and be left feeling horribly disappointed.

Today was still windy, but definitely worth doing - water a little choppy, but the conditions sunny and favourable. We had been alerted to the fact that there were a lot of jelly fish at Starfish Point, so gave our guests, on both the morning and afternoon tours, the option of avoiding this spot. They were wisely in favour of this change, although all a little sad at missing the Sea Stars.

We hosted some lads who were identical twins - that caused some confusion for the photo editor (and some giggles). Why so many photos of the same chap??? Good thing Captain Mario was around at the time to answer the question :-)

All in all, a great tour hugely enjoyed by the crew, the fish and the stingrays who had missed the visits - and, we hope, our guests!
