My 13-year-old was a little more cautious and had decided not to enter the water, but after much coaxing and coercing, she reluctantly came in and started to swim about . She had a wonderful time, until she was stung by a jellyfish just 5 minutes after she was in the water. Needless to say, that ended the trip rather abruptly and everyone got back aboard the boat.
Overall, it was an experience I will treasure for the rest of my life.
*Tours do not run when there is a full moon due to low visibility. Check the moon phase to plan your visit.
*Island Adventures was very helpful, and the staff was great when my daughter was stung by the jellyfish. Do not go on a tour that operates on a gas-powered boat, as it harms the ecosystem of the bay.
*If you choose to swim in the bay, you must use a deet-free bug repellent.
*This is a hands-on experience. Bring a towel, wear old clothes, and don’t worry about your hair.
*Do be prepared for natural dangers. A couple we met along the way had warned us about the jellyfish. A girl on their trip was stung just the night before. I knew this, but I couldn’t resist once I saw it. I was sorry that it happened to my daughter instead of me, but this is also part of nature. This may also be due to the time of year we visited.
