Chamberlain Gorge

While staying at El Questro station, we got up very early and were driven to the Chamberlain Gorge, one of the highlights of the trip. The lady who guided us into the boat was hilarious. She pointed out the yellow safety vests under each seat and proceeded to tell us that crocodiles in the gorge are attracted to yellow, so she suggested in case we were sinking, to swim fasted than the last person. She also pointed out the fire extinguishers on board of this all-aluminium boat.

The views were spectacular and included fish that spit at insects to make them fall in the water so they can eat them. They also shot water up to pellets we were holding in our hands.
