Negril, Jamaica, Feature Photo #20


Meet Captain Kirk

He’s one cool dude, owner and operator of the glass bottom boat, appropriately named – The Star Ship Enterprise. His name was very apropos to his well named and suited vessel similar as to the famous movie series, Star Trek.

Walking the 7-mile, you’d see him traversing the area where the tourists were most densely populated. Density equals more customers; more customers means more money. His boat was relatively new, colorful, and the glass for viewing was clean and clear. There was no algae to be seen. Captain Kirk had his guys dive into the Caribbean and routinely clean off the glass for the customer’s viewing purposes.

Captain Kirk and Conrad

Plus, he was very personable, to the point he should have been a salesman. He has that magnetic face with a big smile, which just drew people in. So, we worked out a deal. Out to the reefs we went. Just as customers that day, me and the kiddo.

Snorkeling the reefs of the beautiful Caribbean. As usual in Jamaica, a fantastic day in paradise as the weather for snorkeling was to die for - water crystal clear. Conrad ended up getting stung by a small jellyfish while snorkeling the reefs. We had to head back to shore where a Jamaican man treated his pain by rubbing some natural aloe on the stung area. Ouch - perils of the sea.

Beware Snorkelers - Jellyfish filled waters!

Captain Kirk was all about his customers, cutting the snorkel expedition slightly short to head back to shore to attend to Conrad's leg

Really hope there is some colour in the reefs down there.

Unfortunate that the reefs, like most everywhere else, are dying out from environmental and ecological issues. Nothing like they used to be

Went to Roatan, Honduras and they were unbelievable 100 feet out from the beach. It's usually the tourists, Chemicals from resorts and anchors that destroy them, also acidification from increased CO2 levels but Jamaica can't be that different. Maybe I need to do SCUBA.
