Day Two in Purto Rico-Snorkeling

Traveler Snorkeling

Originally uploaded by Papa’s Pugs

On our second day in Puerto Rico, we went on a snorkeling excursion. We went through Traveler based on other people’s recommendations. FYI, you have to call ahead to make reservations and the number is on the sign. We got fitted for goggles and fins at the dock and then took off for the ocean. On the way out our first snorkeling spot, we passed the El Conquistador Resort where my husband was a chef at one time. Our first stop was an island where several other excursions were anchored also. We got off the boat and there was a beach to hang out on and coral reefs off the shore. The water wasn’t very deep, but I think that I got some pretty good photos of the reefs. Once we had spent some time in the water, we got back on the boat for lunch and drinks. Everything was provided in the cost the excursion and they definitely did not want you going thirsty. Then we sailed out to anther location to anchor. We stopped just short of a private island. Supposedly the island was once owned by Ricky Martin. The water was much deeper, much colder, and much saltier. But the corals were a lot better with schools of fish everywhere. There was even an old lobster trap that was in the reefs that made for a good photo. We had a great day and the weather could not have been more beautiful.
