Guantanamo River

We decided to rent a pontoon boat on Sunday and test out our new driving skills. We invited five brave souls to join us. I was the Captain for the trip that lasted three hours. We cruised around the Bay and stopped for lunch at one of the small islands. We then cruised up the Guantanamo River to the bridge where you must turn around before you end up in Communist Cuba.

While on the river you are not allowed to get out of the boat. Maybe this is due to the fact the GTMO River is home to the American Crocodile. People have also spotted giant Cuban Boas hanging out in the trees. Yikes!
I know it's hard to tell but the fish in this picture are huge. Some looked two feet long, and that's no fish tale. Everyone was ready to jump out of the boat, swim to the exchange, and buy some fishing poles.

A good time was had by all and I didn't run into anything. Only 17 more Captain hours and I can rent a speed boat. Hot Dog!
