And have some quarters handy also! When we were there in 1998, the locals paddled out to the ship in long canoes (?) and they came with umbrellas. Mmm...didn't look like rain...the idea being that the passengers lined up at the ships railing and tossed quarters which were caught in the upside down umbrellas! Genius . If a quarter escaped, then they would dive in and retrieve it before it sunk.
It was extremely primitive then, I wonder if much has changed in 10 years. Enjoy!
