This Tuesday was my first trip out with the Marine Team, and what a day it was! The boat anchored just off the fringing reefs surrounding Kisite island where we promptly decided to escape the sun’s heat by snorkelling a couple of our transects.
Along the first we were joined by a Hawksbill Turtle which appeared to enjoy our brief company before leaving us for deeper waters. After marvelling at the thriving community of reef fish darting in and out of the coral, I swam into the shallows to quickly adjust my mask before returning to the rest of the group and heading to the boat which was waiting nearby.
