The Maldives Day 9: Christmas day at Kuramathi, part 1
Christmas day started off with breakfast at the buffet restaurant where I realized I like pineapple now! I never used to eat it by itself, but I tried it this morning and it is delicious! We came back to the room to find stingray on our bed!
Then it was time for shark patrol! No sharks yet, but lots of fishes
There were so many fishes just hanging out Raymond said I wonder if they will let me float with them? So he grabbed his snorkel gear and tried
Only they ran away from him
So he snorkeled while I was watching for sharkies!!
All the sharkies!
Raymond came back from snorkeling and said he saw a giant shark out there! Yeah, glad I wasn't out there. I had read in the info book at the Eco Center that if you see a shark don't freak out and splash around as you will scare them and it is not nice. Yeah, I don't think I could have not freaked out...
Then late morning we set off for our Christmas Adventure
A semi-submarine ride! The top always stays above water
But you sit down below so you can spy on the fishes!!
There were so many fishes, and I took a billion photos, but I didn't turn it onto underwater mode until we were almost done...so most of the photos are not that good. I am still going to include a bunch of them cause that's how I roll.
The fishes were really pretty
So many of these tiny black and white fishes
And unicorn fish
And we saw a guy diving down in the water!
Lots of powderblue surgeon fish as well (in the bottom right corner)
So many fishes!
On the way back to shore this school of fish came and surrounded us, but the colors were really disorienting in the boat. I made me a bit dizzy somehow
We did see some dolphins swim under our boat and a big stingray coming back, but no photos as they were way too quick
And going back after all the spying
That was our Christmas morning adventure!
