“The Worst Part was leaving!!” Kim, July2013
“This trip is my favorite travel experience that I have ever had.
Of course lionfish spearing was one of my favorite parts because not only were we able to help remove them from the reef, but they were delicious to eat.
I am a pescatarian (a vegetarian but I eat fish and other seafood) and there was never a meal on the island where I thought that I didn’t get enough to eat. All of the food was amazing (thank you Adrianne and Brittany)! There was nothing better than eating a fish that was caught earlier that day (delicious!!!) ”
One of my favorite parts of this trip was that while I was having a blast diving, I was also helping with the reef conservation.
There was never a dull moment the entire time I was in Belize!! I was having a blast thanks to the ReefCI team.
The worst part was leaving. The question isn’t IF I am going to go back, but rather WHEN I will go back, and I don’t think that I will be able to stay away for long.”
