    Sirena Beach

    June 17, 2018 in Cuba ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    We go for a walk along the northern beach spotting sea stars, conch shell's, upside down mangrove jellyfish, crabs, and plenty of fish. We walk in the crystal clear shallows all the way to the small jetty, where we cross the narrow peninsula to the wonderful southern beach. The temptation is too much and we go swimming.

    Walking back to the boat, we find the crew have decided we are having a snack on the beach of lobster legs, with a cooler box of drinks.

    Later on we reverse off the beach into open water, and anchor for supper and our overnight stay.

    Sirena beach

    June 17, 2018 in Cuba ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Cayó Largó is an island with 25km of gloriously white sand beaches. We skirt very close to shore, until we reach the west side of the island and Sirena beach. The water gets deep, very quickly here. As we turn the corner into a bay, we are able to beach the boat.Read more

    Cayó Iguana

    June 19, 2018 in Cuba ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    We then head back towards the Cayo Largo area. Ben, Joss and myself decide to take the kayaks to the nearby Iguana Island, a very small low-lying island. We land on the island and immediately come face to face with some very big iguanas. They are all coming towards us, but we manage to avoid them. It turns out that other boats land here with tourists, who feed the iguanas, causing them to expect it now unfortunately. We manage to walk around a bit, before another sailing boat arrives, and a big crowd of day trippers wade to the island. Time to leave. We kayak around the island and head back to where the Neptune left us.

    We find the catamaran beached on another Island's beach, where we join the rest of the group spending the afternoon in the shallow water playing volleyball, dancing and having cocktails with our Iguana friends. Later we leave the shore and go further out to anchor for the night.

    Kayaking to Cayó Rico

    June 20, 2018 in Cuba ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    After breakfast we sailed westward for a short time, we were heading for Cayo Rico. Half way there we tried something new and dropped the kayaks in the natural pools and eight of us paddled our way over three miles to Cayo Rico.

    What an experience! We saw nurse sharks, Osprey, Black Hawks, Stingrays, not to mention the beautiful scenery and water. Most of the way the water was barely knee deep, despite us being a fair bit offshore. Occasionally it was so shallow the kayaks would run aground, and we had to walk. At one point we saw a nurse shark, that went under our kayak, and we felt it striking the underside. A truely amazing experience.
