We were picked up from Beez at nine along with eight others and powered by two one hundred and forty horsepower outboards we sped off along the coast. Alongside was Anita, racing us.

We slowed to allow for a group of manta rays swimming just below the surface. After half an hour Anita stopped beside a rock that looked like a big boot, our driver did a slow circle for us to get some pictures.

Our next stop was after gunning through the surf, through a narrow gap in the rocks and then slowing behind the reef.
