A Tropical Playground (and more)

August 15th, 2013 by Seatrek Staff |

After breakfast we headed to Little Jost Van Dyke Island for a morning dive at one of our favorite sites called “The Playground.” Due to its fairly isolated location and sometimes challenging conditions, we don’t get to dive there very often

But today was an exception, as conditions were great. After our dive we headed to Jost Van Dyke to have some lunch and go for a swim. We then walked along the Bubbly Pool Trail, a hike that includes beautiful views of the surrounding islands and Jost Van Dyke’s largest salt pond. In addition to sandy beach and salt pond habitats, mangroves and seagrass beds can be found adjacent to the trail, which ends on the rocky shore of the island’s windward side. After a quick cool off break in the bubbly pools, we hiked back and got in the water for a snorkel around Diamond Cay, a marine reserve on the Island’s East End. The area was teeming with juvenile fish and invertebrates. We even snuck in a little time to enjoy some homemade key lime pie at Foxy’s Taboo restaurant … Yummy!!! Then we headed back to Brewers Bay, our anchorage for the night. At dinner we couldn’t help but think that we only have a few days left together…what a great adventure it has been!
