Barbecue and Murder

Yesterday began with another early morning, and yet another early breakfast at the marina. We then boarded the boats to go to our dive site, the Jesuit Reef, at Long Bay. When we first arrived we were briefed on what the objective was and how we were to move our cinder blocks from the sand to our plant site...

Another Wreck Dive

Today was another early start. We began the day with, yet again, another early morning. We took a taxi to the marina where we enjoyed another great breakfast. After breakfast we hopped on the boat immediately to head over toward Cooper Island. Our first dive at Cooper Island was Wreck Alley, which includes four purposely sunk ships. We...

Day 3

Today began with another early morning. After eating breakfast at the bottom of the hill, we had a great presentation about tagging turtles. We learned about the different types of turtles in the BVI. We also learned that turtles do not stay in one place all the time, they are constantly changing locations and nesting on different beaches around...

Day 2

Today began with another early morning thanks to Doc who graciously woke us up. We walked down the hill to a delicious breakfast, then marine biology 2 headed up to the taxi. The taxi took us to the boat which took us all to Deep Bay where we would look at all the mangrove trees. At deep bay I...

Day 1

Yesterday, we arrived in the BVI quite late. With just our luck, we experienced a delay on the plane from Miami to San Juan, but eventually we made it. Today began with an early morning. We all met at the cattle guard at the bottom of the hill, and Glen, our taxi driver, drove us to the Old Yard...

I am looking forward to traveling back to the British Virgin Islands and all the dives we will be participating in. Unfortunately, this trip is not until July; however, in the first week of summer school we reviewed...

Days 6 & 7

Today was a laid back day. I woke up early, and just chilled on the patio until we had to walk to breakfast at the teachers cabins. We ate muffins, croissants, and had caprisun to drink. It was a breakfast that tasted very good. After breakfast we walked down to the cattle guard, and waited for the teacher in...

Day 5

I was not sure how today would turn out, but it was great just like every other day. We started the day like always, getting up and walking down to the cattle guard to wait for the taxi to pick us up. The taxi once again took us to the dock for us to get breakfast, and get out...

Day 4

Today was the best dive yet. I got up, and had to upload my blog that I wrote last night, so tucker and I got up a bit early and walked down to the lounge in order to upload. From there we walked back to grab our gear for the rest of the day, and walked back down the...
