caicos dream

i have previously mentioned caicos dream tours (here), but it’s was about time I tell you a little more about it.

here’s the thing, every time we have friends and family visiting we go on this tour -yes, i have lost my count! my first time was on my first weekend on island and last week i got to go again – and i love it every time.

last week we were a ginormous group, so we had two boats for ourselves, but usually they pick up tourists staying at hotels along grace bay beach.

this is perfect for half a day plan and the outing has three different chapters!

first we stop by the reef for some snorkeling, i recommend you bringing your snorkeling material, but otherwise you can borrow theirs. we get to see all sorts of coral and colored fish – sometimes we bring our underwater camera too.

then we stop at a special spot to go conch searching, it is quite tricky as they are very well disguised.

we then stopped at iguana island, learn how to clean up a conch and relax by the beach in search of iguanas.

last week there were loads of eagle rays coming near the shore and we even saw a small shark just when we got out of the water!! can you see it? i know it’s small, but still a shark!

on the way back we get to eat conch ceviche made with the conchs we found and each family can take a conch shell home.

we had a great day out and i recommend anyone coming to provo to sign up! make sure you bring lots of sunscreen!!

snorkeling dream day

last year, when my family was over to visit, we went on a half day tour with caicos dreams – whenever we have visitors we always recommend doing this, and of course we always want to join!

we left turtle cove marina, picking up other guests from hotels at grace bay beach and headed to a perfect snorkeling spot – it was so peaceful, we just didn’t want to get out of the water!

how funny do we look on underwater pictures!

we then went for some serious conch picking and iguana watching – promise to keep u posted very soon.

saving starfish

we were astonished when we saw a couple at the beach last weekend grabbing a starfish from the sea and placing it in their backpack…

it might be very tempting for some to take such a beautiful creature as a souvenir back home – but what if everyone decides to do the same?

when we see them grabbing another one, once again we ask if the starfish was dead or alive – we have been living here for a while and have never found a dead starfish on the sea.

we nicely explained that there is a lot of work done by decr in the island to protect marine life, and how the increase of tourists is great for the economy but dangerous if they don’t respect marine life…they then placed both starfish back under water.
