It was a stormy day in February when I joined a small snorkel group out to waters in Ambergris Caye. First stop, the North Channel to hopefully see some manatees in the wild:
Those waves were big but I was the only one hesitant to get into the water. I wanted a chance to see manatees in their natural habitat (as opposed to going to the reserve), so I embraced the nausea induced with each rock of the boat and went in:
Unfortunately, everyone was hiding out. The manatees usually sleep in the grass below but it was just too cold out. 😦
Next stop, coral gardens:
That’s a sea cucumber!
I have never seen so many types of corals in one place!
It may not look like much from above, but it’s an adventure down there!
