Visiting the Baths is a total must-do here in the BVI. I’m sure I’m the nine millionth cruiser to post about the famous boulder/water hike on Virgin Gorda, but hell it’s just that neat!
But don’t worry, I’m not going to bore you with any tips on when to go, how to get there, etcetera etcetera because there are plenty of others out there who’ve got that covered. Instead, I’m just going to tell you that we absolutely loved it! LOVED it!
Sadly, my GoPro did not love the hike as much as we did and just kept fogging over as we roamed about the massive rock formations.
I’m not sure what exactly has gotten into my fav underwater camera companion, but my GoPro has just been the pits lately. The waterproof housing has begun to fog like no other as soon as I take the camera out into the elements. It’s so bizarre. I’ve cleaned it. Dried it. And still, fog. Ugh. If anyone has a good solution for this annoying issue, pretty please let me know.
Luckily, a kind German lady on the beach let me use her towel to clean my GoPro housing (after we had swam to shore directly from the boat) before we entered The Baths. And it worked okay for a little while, but of course began fogging up again mid-baths. Talk about annoying.
Anyhoo, here are some of the shots (and VIDEO!!!) I salvaged from our fog-o-riffic camera. And it’s all from two separate trips to The Baths…in case you’re wondering why I have a change of bikini throughout the vid. Lol. But seriously, check out this awesome tourist spot if you go the the BVI’s! It’s really a neat place to see!
