Bearing this in mind we decided to change to order of proceedings for Tuesday and snorkeling was on the list for morning activities. This time we decided to go a bit further afield so the dinghy came with us and after finding a suitable rock to tie it to we were both in the water having an excellent time exploring all things underwater. The coral was amazing and in really good condition with little sign of damage from weather etc.

After our first shore party on Tuesday afternoon we have re-named Brampton Island as Butterfly Island as it is literally swarming in butterflies which is just beautiful. Wednesday and we are off to do the Island Circuit Walk which takes you on an 8km jaunt around the island. There are some amazing sights with one of the most special views being that of Oyster and Dinghy Bays. We stopped for a bite of lunch at Turtle Beach (they do have excellent names for their beaches up here) before finishing off the walk followed by a refreshing dip off the back of the boat.

Tomorrow the plan will be to head up to Goldsmith Island and then keep moving north as we close in on the Whitsunday islands proper
