March 29th, 2015: The Indians and Norman Island, BVIs

by Sara on March 29, 2015

We left St. John the next morning and went back into British waters. We wanted to snorkel around The Indians. The Indians were 4 small islands (more like 4 huge rocks) that are supposed to be some of the best snorkeling in the area. We arrived too late to get one of the 4 available moorings so we motored past the Indians and picked up a mooring ball just south of Water Point on Norman Island. We snorkeled around the boat and then later dinghied over to the Indians. It was spectacular. Chris first stayed in the dinghy with Finley and I went diving with my mom and dad. I about gave my parents a heart attack when I found a deep, 20-foot long underwater tunnel that I dove down and swam though. I came up on the other side about 60 seconds later and waved to them at the surface. My dad said, “I didn’t know what I was going to do if you didn’t come up!” The snorkeling was amazing both by the Indians but also around where we were moored.

It was getting late in the day so we moved Tumbleweed a half a mile away to The Bight on Norman Island. The Bight is a bay where we could anchor for the night. Once anchored we went into the beach bar for happy hour drinks. This bar had a huge “Jenga” game made from cut up 2x4s. Our beach chairs were right by the game so, of course, Chris and I played. We had the stack pretty high before it all came tumbling down. I think it was great entertainment for not just us, but everyone else around us also! This beach bar atmosphere made for a perfect evening after our full day swimming and snorkeling.
