Here are some pics from the cheap amazon underwater camera. These are taken at John Brewers beach in St Thomas and on a cruise ship shore excursion (kayaking & snorkelling) in St Kitts.

St Kitts

Kayaking and snorkeling

I’d signed up for the Nature kayaking and snorkelling shore excursion. We are usually too frugal to pay the cruise line for something we can organize on our own or buy cheaper at the pier, but since I was by myself, I was more comfortable with the cruise’s offering.

So I boarded the bus for the short, commentated ride to the first beach where we picked up the kayaks.

From the bus window.

I paired up with Nish, a young Brit (adult, but young compared to me). After donning life vests that said they were only appropriate for snorkelling and should not be used as floatation devices😀, we kayaked a short way to another beach. This was the location for snorkelling and we saw turtles and colourful fish. Then, kayaked a longer distance to a beach where they set up a ‘picnic’ of water and fresh fruit. No bathroom facilities. From there, the bus took us back to the ship.

That was only my second time kayaking, but Nish was more experienced and we didn’t tip (unlike my first time) and we were reasonably efficient. Good exercise and fun to be out on the water. Having burned myself the previous day in St Thomas, I wore spandex shorts past my knees and a t-shirt to protect my back. So no worse.

As previously arranged I met Steve in the Cheers bar and then we bought him some loud shirts. This pic shows the shirt, not the bar 😀
