Ok,.. snorkeling report.... arrived at " two step " around 9 am and were pleasantly surprised to find a very light load of snorkels .... the water was a lot murkier than some of my previous visits but there's been a pretty good swell the last couple of days so maybe that has something to do with it ,.. as always " two step" just refuses to disappoint ,.. there was lots of large heathy yellow tangs grazing among the rocks and coral, a few moorish idols here and there to make one say "wow " what a beautiful animal, parrotfish seemingly were oblivious to anything around them as the chewed away on the coral clusters ,a few nice big fat humu's laying back and keeping a very close eye on you making sure you kept your distance before they bolted. It was so awesome to be able to be there again !
A equipment report if I may ,....I eluded to buying one of the newer fullface masks that greg had already ,... I already have a few moderately priced masks that I've managed to acquire over the years that have served me well, any of you guys that have a large flowing mustache knows that getting a mask that doesn't leak is pretty hard to find, I normally use a pretty good dab of silicone grease around that area to help seal out the water and 95 % of the time it works well,...today I started out using my trusty " sea vision " mask while I got my snorkeling legs back ,...after a long relaxing tour of the pinnacle tops and caverns I went back to shore and decided to try out the new full face mask,... I was a little apprehensive to tell you the truth but after about 30 seconds I was totally flabbergasted as how well these new masks worked , no leaks,no snorkel in your mouth and very comfortable ! It's kinda neat to be able to breath thru you mouth or your nose and not have the mask fog up at all... I am a total believer now,...the ol' sea vision mask is now retired as 2nd string !!!!
Maybe this little rant will help someone out there on the cusp about buying one Click image for larger version
