The days were all pretty similar, sail to a few locations, anchor for a bit, relax then sail to a new location. The area you are sailing in is beautiful. The islanda providing a beautiful backdrop to the turquoise waters of the sea
I woke up at about 6 before anyone else and went and sat on deck. Whilst there I witnessed a couple of turtles surfacing for air. Unfortunately my camera was below decks. We spent the morning on the beach and then set sail to take in some views from a lookout where we spotted rays and more turtles from our vantage point in the hills. After lunch we set off again. We managed to hoist the spinnacer on this leg. This beast of a sail almost triples your speed. The boat took off towards Blue Pearl Bay and some snorkelling.
The fish here swarm around you touching your body and in one case swimming up someones board shorts. Even the guy who broke his toe on the first day managed a smile inbetween all his whinging.
We anchored at Blue Pearl for the night. That night a dolphin went fishing around our boat for about 10 minutes only 5-10 metres from the rails. More snorkelling in the morning and then off to South Molle Island resort for some Pina Coladas and harrassment from drunk Rainbow Lorikeets before heading home.
This area is incredibly beautiful and I am glad I got the chance to experience it in the way I did. Better than Fraser Island if you are stuck for a choice.
