Sisters' Island Marine Park Intertidal Walk - July 2015

I was very happy to secure a slot for two to join the introductory intertidal guided walk at Sisters' Island Marine Park.  We were to report at Marina South Pier at 6.50am but we went there much earlier, at around 6.30am to secure a parking lot.

At around 6.30am at Marina South Pier...

 Big Sister's Island
Upon reaching the island, we had a quick safety briefing by Collin and then we were split into 4 groups, with each group around 10 members.  We got Adriane, a volunteer as our guide.
 We saw many monkeys on the islands.  Never feed them or let them see your food!  They can get aggressive and snatch your food from you!  

 Moon Snail.

 Land Hermit Crab... Purplish!

 Common Starfish.

 Garlic Bread Sea Cucumber

Beaded Sea Anemone.

 Hairy Crab.

Sand Collar, egg case of the Moon Snail.  These are unhatched eggs.
 There is a pair of sea moths (a type of fish) in this photo but you will really need to strain your eyes to see them.

 Just opposite is the Small Sister's Island.

The next round of registration will open on 2 Aug 10am for booking of a free guided tour in September.  Do refer to this website for more details:
