Cozumel - August 11th

We took a snorkeling tour to Cozumel today. We rode a ferry over to the island and then took a small boat (10 of us total) to two different snorkel spots. Our boat was named the Sea Witch. We were a little disappointed because there wasn't as much sea life as we expected. We heard Cozumel had great snorkeling. But the water was an amazing color of blue and so clear you could see all the way to the bottom probably 60 feet below us. A Mexican guide that barely spoke English took us around and we did see a Barracuda. It was a fun day out on the water! We also got to see the Playa del Carmen beach during day light since the ferry left from there. That evening we went to the Japanese Hibachi grill. We were exhausted but still enjoyed the festive atmosphere of the dinner. Justin even attempted to catch a chunk of fried egg in his mouth that the chef tossed to him while cooking fried rice. We also upgraded our room that evening and got a much nicer room with a third floor patio facing the pool with an ocean breeze.

Uh huh. I see you on a "snorkel" boat, but you are fully clothed, and no snorkeling photos. I think someone conned you into getting on that boat.
