Survivor Searching

(Isla Chapera and Mogo Mogo Channel, Las Perlas Islands, Panama)

Since we are anchored beside the island where multiple seasons of Survivor have been filmed we figured we better go search for a forgotten immunity idol or something. Well there was nothing left to find, which, if you think about it, is really a good thing. What we did find was a tiny spec of a sand island large enough to kick a soccer ball across and absolutely littered with beautiful shells. And right around the corner was the yesterday’s honeypot dive location so we all went for a look-see.

The visibility wasn’t great, but with a little focus there was a lot to see. Brightly coloured reef fish, large schools of bermuda chum, and a big gliding ray. I was even lucky enough to spot one Greg’s elusive cubera dog snapper on a rare venture outside its hole.

Continuing our Survivor scavenger hunt we walked across an entire island (taking us all of 60 seconds), were blown away by the seemingly endless availability of our previously coveted purple shell, and mostly, we just got really hot.

That’s it. That’s the entire island. And there goes the soccer ball over the top.

Back on Mogo Mogo we look for the quickest way across. (Don’t mind the moisture spot on the camera lens. Just adds to the atmosphere.)

Pfewf. We made it.

I think the heat is getting to him.
