For our cruise excursion in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico, our family chose to become a pirate for the day, which included snorkeling. This excursion promised entertainment, food, and snorkeling. Sounded good.
We were welcomed onboard the pirate ship by a scary pirate that was in full gear, down to eye patch and sword. While we cruised to the bay, where we were going to snorkel, they entertained us with a swashbuckling pirate show.
The kids were very entertained. By the end of the show, we had arrived at the bay and two pirates leap from the crow’s nest into the water. The kids went wild.
You Want Me To Walk The What?
The surprise for the guests, at this point, was that in order to get into the ocean we had to walk the plank and jump in!!! It was a little scary to do that.
After the snorkeling, we dined on a great lunch, as we sailed back to shore.
As we sailed home, I happened to look ahead of the ship and was a little perplexed by what I was seeing. I asked one of the crew what it was.
“Oh, that is just our Rays.” He said it as if it was of little consequence. I then bombarded him with questions. “How high do they jump? How far do they soar? Does this happen all the time? How……How…Why…”
I was in awe. I could not get enough.
This was the highlight of my day. Talk about making memories.
If you ever are in Puerta Vallarta, be sure and watch for flying rays. And, definitely become a pirate for the day.
