Day 8 – Unveiling The Magic: Exploring Norman Island’s Spectacular Treasures
The Satellite image is provided by Atlastrax showing our GPS travels from today! Atlastrax is a satellite tracker for boats and assets that can be taken to remote destinations because of its ability to run on batteries. We love using our tracker for safety during excursions like this. Atlastrax can also be used for theft recovery purposes though! It’s a wonderful product we love sharing.
We set sail from the Moorings Base brimming with anticipation for the hidden wonders of Norman Island.
