Day 9

On our final day, we went snorkeling all day long. We woke up quite early to get on a boat and went to discover Belizean underwater "treasures". We observed all kinds of marine flora and fauna. We saw parrotfish, eels, anemones, jellyfish, stingrays, an octopus, and many more types of fish and plants. 
First, we went by boat to spot manatees, but unfortunately didn't find any. We then went to a place where we snorkeled among red mangroves. After this, we went to the Smithsonian Institute's research center on a different island, where two scientists explained their work. We visited wet labs and dry labs and spotted many hermit crabs. We proceeded to navigate to an island, Ize Caye, where we ate lunch (sandwiches and watermelon) and swam around the pier. Finally, we visited two other snorkeling spots before coming back to Tobacco Caye. 
To finish the day, we will have dinner then go night snorkeling, our last big activity before leaving the island tomorrow morning.
