Kent, I always enjoy your travel reports very much! You are such a nice person and your love for snorkeling and sharing with others - in person or on the board - shines through in all your posts! I'm not a snorkeler but you inspired me, one day I want to try it out.
One question regarding the night snorkeling: how can you see anything in the water at night? Do you take certain flash lights or lamps with you?
Ariel ~ you made it to Aruba! I look very much forward hearing about your adventures!
To answer CK1's question; we used underwater flashlights. The first night we went out it was a little scary, but after about a week of going every night it was incredibly fun. There is a completely different group of marine life out at night. Rays, eels, sea turtles, big eye, shrimp, lobster, spiny sea urchins, parrot fish and star fish. I even killed a lion fish one night. There was a few nights the bio luminescent plankton made the water glow blue, but you had to turn the flashlights off to see it.
