Last Day in the BVI

Today wasn't as exciting as all the other days because of the lack of diving, but it was maybe the most important. We woke up early and made our way to the marina to participate in some community service. It was good to finally give back to the people that have sacrificed so much of their time and energy...

Final Dive Day

Today marks the final day of diving in the BVI :(... But that was the only negative aspect of av perfect birthday. Today at 12:01 local time, I turned 17. It was probably the best birthday I've ever had. I got to spend this birthday 40 feet underwater looking at some of the most spectacular sights, which most humans...

4th day in the BVI…

Today differed from all the other days. We didn't eat at the hotel that we usually have breakfast and lunch at. We went straight to the marina to have a quick lunch, so that we could hit the water early to get in our two planned dives. We headed toward the wreck of the Rhone to start our first...

3rd Day in the BVI

Today marks the third day of my magnificent voyage in the Land of Gorda. I awoke early this morning around 7:45 to change and apply sunscreen...not enough I guess because I got a pretty nice sun burn on my back...haha. After breakfast this morning, Casey led the group through a discussion over coral reefs and the different things that...

2nd Day in the BVI

Well my first draft (which probably took me 30 minutes) just deleted itself, so I'm re-writing the entire thing. Today started off just like yesterday...early. Most of us made it down to the rally point at 8:30, but one group in particular was late. They now have to wake everyone else up tomorrow, which means they have to wake up...

First day in the BVI

Today was AMAZING. There really isn't another way to describe it. It was fantastic. We started off the day by waking up at 7:30 and immediately going to breakfast to get briefed on the week. After our briefing we discussed different impacts of humans on marine ecosystems and vice versa. We discussed the different negative implications that humans can...

Final Day in class

Today marked the last day of class at Jesuit. It was no different than any other class we have had yet. We started off the class with another discussion about the upcoming trip. After 30 minutes of discussion, Brody and Hayden took over the class and discussed their article. Their article examined the life of a specific fish called...

Marine Biology…9

Class today was just as exciting as all the other ones, but the schedule and organization was a little different. We actually started class of with a brief discussion about the BVI and our itinerary when we are there. Mr. Kirby explained all the dives and meal plans to us. Then we went straight to the lab to finish...

Marine Biology Day 8

Once again the day started with two groups sharing their analysis and opinion on their individual articles. The first article, presented by Nick and Rob, was very interesting. They went over the mimic octopus and its different characteristics. The mimic octopus actually mimics different marine organisms in order to stay camouflaged and protect itself from predators. The article was...
