Two Lagoons

It was amazing how our cruise ship squeezed in a tight space between two ships as we docked on a platform where visitors could hire small traditional boats to take a tour of the lagoons in the bay. Our group of course took the tour and each boat can accommodate up to 4 persons. Our boat-woman rowed us through a small cave tunnel to enter a lagoon. If I’m not mistaken, these were the same lagoons I visited before. It was nice and quiet lest for the occasional laughs and sometimes songs from other boats doing the same tour. It was really more of a sightseeing tour since we didn’t get off the boat. I’d also think twice swimming here as the waters were not that inviting for me.
