I was then off to Exmouth just that little bit further north, It is bigger then Coral Bay it has some shops. It has the National Park Cape Range, we have landed here on the school holidays which is not the best idea as it is very busy.
We decided to do a snorkeling with the manta rays and look for humpback whale trip as we haven't done much of that kind of thing since we left home it is quite expensive for most things so you have to figure out what you want to do most. swimming with the whale sharks is the thing to do here at this time of year but it would have cost us over $1200.00 i just think that was a little more then i wanted to spend, so we did the other.
They picked us up fitted us for our gear then took us all the way out to the boats, we get there all keen to see the manta rays & Alyssa has her wet suit on & is complaining again about something or other i wasn't taking to much notice as she does this quite often, she is going on about something biting her so we strip the wet suit off & this ugly spider falls out, she starts crying from the pain going up her arm into her neck so they had to take us back to go to the hospital. The look on all the other people on the boat was funny as they start checking there suits.
We spent 7 hours in hospital Alyssa had to have anti venom for a red back spider poor thing, Exmouth emergency department were fantastic.
We were taken out on the Monday for our snorkel, we had the boat to ourselves & it was the bigger & much nicer, lucky there was no one else as i was throwing for most of the time, we did see the rays & the humpbacks it was amazing but i just couldn't wait to get back to land. Mason even got in i was so pleased he had a great time, Laura piggy backed Ella the hole time she was great Ella loved it.
Turquoise bay was the most amazing place to snorkel Mark & Alyssa went out for about 1 hour i was still feeling very ordinary from the day before so i stayed out they had a great time.
