Greetings Pirates & Divers,
Having just returned from an 8-day cruise to the ABC Islands, I thought it would be an ideal time to share some thoughts with everyone. Even though we did not dive on the trip, we did get to snorkle in some incredible waters right off the beaches in each location. It was an amazing experience, getting to view thousands of beautiful and unique fish, and even a water snake and an octopus up close.The beaches themselves were beautiful, and with 84 degree water temperatures and 75′ visibility, were perfect for all of us to enjoy.
In addition, we met some very nice people during our cruise who have become great friends. A couple of new friends, John & Leslie Ebinger even enlisted Cindy to go horseback riding in Aruba. All in all, it was an awesome adventure full of snorkleing, reading, relaxing, exploring and indulging in the finer pleasures of rum and tequila.
The thing you soon realize about these Islands is that once you visit, you can’t wait to visit them again. Our friends Jan & Don Slee of local dive shop Discover Diving told us these Islands were paradise, and they were right.
