ELLE (Canada) - - Escape -

“I’ve never felt more like a dol­phin,” says pho­tog­ra­pher’s as­sis­tant Vic­tor Tate af­ter try­ing out a “reef ex­plor

er,” or a SeaDoo Seas­cooter, dur­ing a break from the ELLE Canada photo shoot at the re­sort. The per­sonal un­der­wa­ter jet­pack tucks un­der your body and lets you zoom through the wa­ter at up to five kilo­me­tres an hour and to depths of 40 me­tres—but you do have to re­mem­ber to come up for air more fre­quently than a dol­phin! (The even more ad­ven­tur­ous can try a Fly­board, an­other type of jet­pack that propels you up into the air.) On the day I’m set to try the reef ex­plorer, the wa­ter is too choppy, so I go out on a cata­ma­ran in­stead. Sailor Vin­cent Leon points out the nearby reefs as we zip along the waves (the wind speed is a brisk 10 knots)—the dark patches are easy to spot amid the pale

turquoise zones. “On a calm day, you can see right down to the pur­ple, yel­low and blue corals,” he says. “It’s a great spot to snorkel.”
