Today was a magnificent day. It started just after daybreak with a climb of over 380 steps to the top of a tuff cone, a famous part of Bartholomew Island. We stopped at the beach after breakfast for a refreshing dip that hit the spot. Then we headed off to explore the deeper waters along the coast of the island. After our morning hike, we looked forward to two snorkeling opportunities and an outing in the glass-bottom boat. In the afternoon, we enjoyed deep-water snorkeling in the channel and Zodiac tours. We had three chances to get in the water with water temperatures around 80° F. What a great day.
