Day 169 – Snorkelling off Bounty Island

It’s our last day island hopping and what better way to spend it than relaxing in the sun. After breakfast, we took a stroll around the island. Bounty Island is tiny and it took us a whole 15 minutes to walk around the perimeter. As we walked round, we spotted a couple of baby sharks right on the beachfront. They were scared of us as we stepped into the water. I’m sure it would have been a different story if mummy shark was around!

With the reef just metres off the island, we spent the morning snorkelling. It was actually quite a big reef considering it was right off the island. Holding onto each other, we spent around an hour or so snorkelling with a bird’s eye view of the under water world. The snorkelling gear here was much better than the mask that I used when snorkelling with sharks so this time I had a much better experience. Now for some proper relaxation. We grabbed a couple of loungers by the pool, got our books out and topped up our tans. It was really nice. John got a bit restless so he hired out a kayak and went around the island on his own.

Our boat back to the mainland was due to arrive mid-afternoon but it appeared as though it was running late. Eventually it arrived and after saying our goodbyes to the Danish girls we got back to Nadi around 8.30pm to be welcomed again by Mama. That evening we ordered Mama’s Fijian fish, we fully recommend it, it was delicious! Then we walked over to the beach and watched some entertainers playing with fire before heading to bed. This time, we were sharing a dorm with several other people including an english girl called Laura who has also booked onto our Feejee Experience tour.
