- Tree climbing demonstration
What we will do
- We will start our excursion exploring Muri Lagoon, which includes four stunning uninhabited islands. We will board a comfortable glass-bottom boat that will allow us to see the multi-coloured marine life teeming beneath us: multi-coloured tropical fish in all shapes and sizes swim in the crystal-clear waters and, from time to time, we will also glimpse the flourishing coral.
- Near the lagoon there are other species including the famous abalone, a lovely mollusc typical of these waters and always a popular dish.
- Our boat will take us to the tiny uninhabited island of Koromiri which we can safely explore at our leisure; we will also have the option to carry on snorkelling or swimming in the warm waters of the lagoon.
- A delicious barbecue lunch will then be waiting for us before we are entertained by a local guide who will watch a tree climbing demonstration with us and we will be shown how to open and wash a coconut.
- Before returning to the ship for our return journey, we will still have time available to do some more snorkelling or swim in the wonderful waters of the lagoon.
