Raising the anchor early, we'll then take a quick cruise to Montgomery Reef, an unusual reff structure that creates spectacular cascading waterfalls in the middle of the ocean. This reef is also home to turtles, crocodiles and all kinds of aquatic life, which we'll search for in the dinghies. Finally we'll spend the late afternoon cruising into Dugong Bay where we'll anchor for the evening.
