Laguna Gri-Gri

Caleton Beach

So last weekend we stayed at a fabulous villa in Rio San Juan. It was a 3-bedroom villa and 18 people slept there – with the 6 of us in one bedroom – but that’s another story.

On the Saturday morning, Wailly had organised a boat/fishing trip for us. After an early start (7am sharp at the dockside at Laguna Gris Gris), we looked at the small lagoon and at the 30-or-so boats moored there. There were several fabulous sports fishing boats – the sort that take big fat Americans fishing for big fat Marlin. Also there was a row of dubious looking open skiffs. Not much more than large rowing boats with aged outboard motors.

Guess which we were going in….. [Read more…]

Our fishing trip

Doctor fish_1

Hi Matt & Ben here,

We had a great boat ride in the Dominican republic we started off in a huge boat that cost us  DOP$4000 or about 60 pounds.  We went through a narrow channel to get to the sea, were we saw Vultures  and Egrets .  When we got to the sea, we set up our big thick fishing rods.  Then we went to see the swallow cave and some others but before we went to see the swallow cave we had to take down the fishing rods, then we went  to something that they called a swimming pool, but it wasn’t really a swimming pool because it had lots of fish in it, you could swim in it with flippers on and it was part of the warm, warm sea where we also caught 3 the second fish did a poo poo  on daddy the  last fish was the one that i caught and it was called a Blue Doctor Fish here is a photo of it.  After that we went to see a coral reef and Daddy dived in with a mask onto see some coral.  Then it was time to go home.
