…NOT TOO FAR FROM THE INDIANS IS YOUR NEXT SNORKEL LOCATION, THE CAVES AT NORMAN ISLAND.  NORMAN ISLAND IS FAMOUS FOR INSPIRING ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON’S NOVEL “TREASURE ISLAND”, A NOVEL BASED ON ACTUAL EVENTS INVOLVING PIRATED VESSELS AND PLUNDERED TREASURE WHICH WAS ULTIMATELY BURIED AT NONE OTHER THAN NORMAN ISLAND!  ENTER ONE OF THE 3 CAVES AT TREASURE POINT AND EXPERIENCE COOL WATERS WITH SEA FERNS ON THE WALLS.  THE NORTHERNMOST CAVE WILL TAKE YOU BACK 70FT, SO BRING YOUR WATERPROOF FLASHLIGHT AND SEARCH FOR THE SECRET MARKINGS ON THE CAVE WALLS, THEY COULD LEAD YOU TO THE BURIED TREASURE.
