Fish feeding!
The highlight of our underwater world adventure agreed by all was Manta Ray Bay. After mooring at the bay, applying our sun screen and stinger suits the mother of the crew let out a squeal! What was wrong? was the thought that ran through my head as I ran to the side of the boat. After waiting a moment and realizing that no words were going to come out of her mouth I peered into the water to see a dark shadow swimming below the boat. My instant thought, a shark! My biggest fear! Others gathered and after much discussion and debate it was decided my brother was to be thrown into the water to have a closer look! Before this could be achieved the shark came right up close to the back of the boat for us to discover it was not a shark but rather a massive groper.
There was no stopping us now as the crew of On the double jumped into the water to swim with this impressive fish. There were hundreds of different kinds of fish, all different shapes, colours and sizes! We also discovered that our once thought shark had friends and even bigger friends at that!
After exploring this incredible bay we swam back to our boat where our shark still remained. Maybe our friend is hungry a thought that ran through my head. Some bread will do. Without warning the others I proceeded to the kitchen to retrieve the bread and returned to the side of the boat where the others continued to swim and I began to feed the fish!
The fish went crazy! They were jumping out of the water and splashing about right in front of my crews unsuspecting faces. They began squealing as the fun really began. Other crew members joined in as I returned to the water with bread in hand and began to feed these incredible creatures by hand not without a few nibbles of my fingers! This was an experience like nothing else!
Our week at sea is an adventure that neither I nor my 5 other crew members will ever forget!
