Manukan Island, Sabah

Saturday, 4 March 2017 – Reynald, our guide from yesterday, came back and got us but not so early this time so we had time to have a nice breakfast in the tea room of the Jesselton Hotel.  The hotel’s name comes from the British name for the town before it was called Kota Kinabalu.

Today was our ‘beach’ day and we all agreed that Manukan Island was nice enough that an overnight stay would have been great.

Bubble heads at Pulau Manukan

We were all going to go on these bubble head ride things but as soon as my bubble went under the water and I felt the pressure, my heart started to pound!!  I tried slowing my breathing but it didn’t help so I signalled the guy that was towing me that I couldn’t do it.  I think he could tell by the look on my face. 😦

David got some great videos of all of the fish and I managed to get a little bit sunburned while snorkelling.  Day 3 was a really good day!  🙂
