320Trip End Ongoing
The next day I was completely better and went on a boat trip with a bunch of girls we met. The boat took us to a little, white sand beach that was surrounded by crystal blue water. This little island is what everyone thinks of when they imagine a tropical island. Once again we played frisbee, snorkelled and collected more skin cancer. When we got back we went to a floating bar which was located in the water (of course) just right outside our little beach hut. Since the cut on my head is finally getting better we decided to give the Thresher shark dive a chance.
We got up at 5am so we could be in the water early. This is such a painful time to wake up! Anwyay we got to the site and jumped in. It was the most boring & expensive dive yet! There were no sharks but more importantly there was nothing else to look at. It was totally lame so to amuse ourselves, Dave put random coral in his mouth to look like a tongue and I wrapped seaweed around Dave's tanks. In retrospect, that probably was not a good idea because when he tried to pull it off it started to turn off his air supply and we were at 20 meters. I saw this whole thing unfold and tried to get my extra regulator ready incase his oxygen did get cut off. It all worked out and his oxygen stayed on. That was the highlight of this overpriced, shitty dive! So, somewhat disillusioned with the beach and the dive we decided to check out another island that is really known for nice white beaches. And away we went........
