I've been told that the primary snorkeling spot here at Marine Beach is actually an old bomb crater from WWII.
Nice, clear, refreshing water!
Oops! I accidentally pressed the "RECORD" button on my camera. Keeping that in mind, I think you'll find this video entertaining.
Tide was lower than what I have ever seen at Marine Beach. This created a sun-heated basin with water a few inches deep. I think it must be due to the temperature that critters such as these brittle stars (which usually stay hidden in holes) came out all around us.
A snowflake moray even greeted us, but he did head for cover as soon as he could.
Here, in the second pool, Olga and Ludmila find a lionfish!
So THAT'S how you snorkel! Lie down on the ground and peer in. Definitely works for this small hole.
And on to the next attraction....
Every other time I have been here there has been a ripping current in this swimming hole. On this day, with the tide so low that waves were not splashing over the reef, current was nearly nil and it was a very safe and fun spot.
