Fish feeding was no longer allowed in the island, but somebody told us to put some bread  inside
a plastic and keep it in our pocket.

Explore what is more, beneath the crystal  blue green water
of the island…

so  quick and fast  from different angle.

Fish is willing to hand-fed..they nip it at your hand.
its really amazing experience…

When I saw Albert of Akyat Aral Org.,  look like playing with the fishes, .
