Well. Thank God we're alive!
That boat got very choppy at times! It really was a shame that the weather was crap, but in a way we're kind of pleased, because we got to see a very different Whitsundays - more dramatic and exciting! I think it was all well worth it. We made loads of friends and the food was great! The various journeys on the boat were a bit hair-raising, with it being pushed and buffeted around by the sea... A few people cried because they were scared and others seems to be a little green in the face!
It's a shame that the other dives were cancelled because we were hoping to go in again, but in the end - at least we got to have a go! It's not as bad as we expected, although it is very strange to breath underwater!
Once back on the mainland we checked into Magnums in Airlie Beach. We'd already booked in at Reefos, but they were so bad when we stayed before the sailing that we decided to give it a miss.
Magnums is great though, although we had someone trying to get into our room in the middle of the night (!??!).
Lots of love Gareth and Helen x x x
