And for good reason too.
The moment you see the island in the distance you can make out shapes of little creatures jumping and running around.
When you get closer you realize they're monkeys.
Unfortunately they've gotten quite aggressive and lazy over the years.
People used to dock here, come on shore and feed bananas and other fruit to the monkeys.
Then a few years ago a woman was attacked by these monkeys.
And now tours only really get just close enough to the shore to throw food to them and take photos...
Or so we thought!
Just because we didn't go on shore, that doesn't mean they were going to stay away from us.
They jumped onto the front of our boat like they owned the place, climbed right in and started roaming around.
I wasn't sure if I should push it off, pet it or feed it.
I decided a photo would be sufficient.
Looking back on that photo, I don't particularly like how this monkey is looking at me so I'm glad I didn't stand there any longer than I did.
There was a little boy on board who decided it was a good idea to pet the wild monkeys.
While teasing them with a banana just far enough where the monkey wouldn't be able to reach it.
The monkey finally swiped its claws at him and he jumped back.
All this happening while the crew and everyone on the boat yelling at him to stop.
And his parents reaction was to take photos of him...
Lunch on a new island was the next point of port!
Has anyone else been to an island of hungry, wild monkeys?
