Cayos Cochinos

Monday, June 8th, 2009

After a very rough day of sailing, about 6 hours to be exact, we arrived at the chain of Islands known as Cayos Cochinos. We moored in an area next to Cochino Grande where the water was 5 different shades of blue. This was an absolutely gorgeous setting and we where the only ones around. This was by far the best snorkeling experience that we had on our visit to the Bay Islands.

We were able to identify over 50 different varieties of fish with the highlights being two very large Queen Angelfish. We also spotted a good size lobster but because we were in the nature reserve we could not catch it. The visibility underwater was excellent which made for very good video footage of the reef and its inhabitants.

After snorkeling we enjoyed a gorgeous sunset and a great meal prepared by Captain Kenny of the Island Time. We looked forward to the next day knowing that we were going to be arriving in Guanaja.
