Headed back to Moussau
24 September 2009 | At sea
Underway from Mussau back to Kavieng. The boat was extra full and we had to provision the diving BCDs as emergency PFDs. At about 11:30 in the morning Magic Roundabout was surrounded by a pod of pan tropical spotted dolphins that Cleo reckoned were hunting. It seemed like another pod came to join in as the dolphins played around the bow of the boat and others jumped out of the sea hundreds of meters off in the distance. We were surrounded.
We arrived just after 17:00 and did a logistical shuffle with Keithsons' banana boat, the hitch hikers, and their cargo before setting anchor near Nussau Island just on the other side of the channel from Kavieng town.
