And so, to the first of our pre-booked excursions, a little high speed island hopping.
We were collected from our hotel early and taken to the docks to join those we would be sharing a boat for the day. The RIB set off sedately from the pier until we were clear of the bay and then twe speedoff being taken to new lands…
Of course, you can’t stay on the boat when the water is so inviting, and this tour by Bali Hai offered two opportunities to snorkel and provided the required equipment too, so no need to pack those bulky flippers in your suitcase.
A tasty buffet lunch was provided on the boat as we sat moored up in a bay between two islands giving a great backdrop to enjoy the food by.
After lunch came the second snorkel oportunity
Then on to a private beach club for an afternoon of relaxing with a cocktail or cold Bintang (the local brew) or water sports including banana boats, paddle boards and kayaks.
After an afternoon in our own little slice of paradise.
It was back on the boat for a speedy run back to the mainland, and a return shuttle to the hotel. Where we decided to indulge in a little room service (all that snorkeling and sun worshiping is tiring work), like everything else we had had so far amazingly tasty, very reasonably priced and delivered with a smile.
