Best day I swear I have had this WHOLE Trip!!
Anyway, woke up bright and early, and hopped on a shuttle bus with another Contiki tour to head to the marine for a day on George's Boat. As its called.! We were a little nervous to start off with as we hadn't met anyone before a felt a little like outsiders, but it wasn't long until we were warmly welcomed into the tour!
We had heard some things about George, however, didn't really believe them until we hopped on the boat and he was giving out t-shirt, with extremely graphic images on them! He was very funny, but also very disturbing!
His fave thing to say was " eat up eat up its good for your sex life!"
All I know is that he probably has a very good job!
Anyway we started cruising and enjoyed about an hour just being gobsmacked by the colour of the water.
Our first stop was to watch a sealion show which was very cute, and good because we could just stay on the boat, the stage was in the middle of the sea!
We then headed over to a nice resort for some EXTREME SPORTS!!!!!
The beach was nice and had a million deckchairs for us with people running around offering drinks and massages.
Franny and I decided we should go parasailing, so we did!
it was so incredibly fun! We had to run a full pelt from this long jetty while this little, tiny boat managed to lift us into the sky! It was so scary going up as I didn't know how in the world we didn't just jump off and land in the water. Instead we were lifted into the air at an alarming speed!
I must have fallen out of my harness at one point because halfway through the ride I noticed I was a lot lower than franny and while she was sitting, I was hanging! I must have looked really stupid!
The view was amazing though, and we got about 10 minutes up there, but it had to finish eventually and we were dumped into the water, trying in untangle ourselves from the parashute. It was so fun!
Anfter some hanging around, watching everyone else have a go and swimming an tanning, it was time to set sail again to another swimming hole.
We got lunch then which was very delish! the most amazing hot chip ever! and was George said " good for your sex life!"
We ate and hung out until we got to a beautiful water hole and we swam for ages, they threw out lilo's and noodles and frisbees for us to play with! We jumped off the boat and all the guys did flips and stuff.
After while we got a little cold so it was time to go to georges famous " skinny dippy island"
Now most people would not believe it, but in this case, there was definely a group mentality thing going on. What i saying is, almost every single person on the boat, including the tour guides ( that is 55 people) joined in at skinny dippy island. Including franny and myself! People were stipping down left right and centre and jumping off the boat so thats what franny and I did too!
It was so fun and crazy!
After a while, the tour manager decided to steal our clothes which was great because, of course, being the two new ones, we got our clothes back, while the others had to look, some stark naked, all around to boat for them!
By this time, the bar of the boat had had a lot of business, and it was time to sing the australian anthem and I come from a land down under right into the harbour - ( almost everyone on the tour was from australia!)
We got in, most burnt, very tired, but happy and had our way back to the hotel where we join a group of the contiki travellers for some drinks and food ( best mousakka every - sorry mum) and retired to bed. Well, they did, as they had to get up at 445 in the morning!)
We had a little stick beak to the HUGE resort next door where we got so see some greek dancing in a performance!
It was such a great day Ill never forget.
