Dolphins and paintball

Normally, you don’t associate these things together. However, on Saturday the Ackers, Myers and Moons enjoyed both in one fun-filled day. It all started with an early wake-up call at 600a. Since we’ve been sightseeing and staying up late most nights, the alarm wasn’t well received by anyone. We headed down to Agat Marina about a 25 min drive from our place. There we met Capt. Chris who is a parent at our kids’ school. He captains a 40′ catamaran called the Sea Odyssey II. The early start would get us a jump on all the other boat tour operators and keep us from the intense heat of mid-day. As you can see from the pics, it was a glorious day. Agat is a calm protected area and the dolphins enjoy the sandy bottoms and slow waters.

We found a school of about 10 dolphin willing to play along side the boat. They stayed with us as if knowing that we’d enjoy watching them. The dolphins were incredibly close to us, about 10 feet away. Truly one of the highlights of our adventure.

Here are Scott, Will, Wally and Alex ready for paintball war. Later that afternoon, we ran around the course shooting balls from air-powered guns at each other. The balls left little bruises, but it was all worth it.

Added bonus!! The kids enjoyed the “flow rider” at Tarza waterpark a couple days before the boat ride. Most of us tried this ride over and over. With the water flowing up at you, if you balance correctly, you remain stationary with the water pushing up the slope and past you. It was easy to lay on the board and enter the ride, the hard part was staying on the board and not having the water push you up the slope and over the edge.  Here’s Alex showing up how it’s done, and Tyler showing us how not to do it.
