Final Day on the island

Yesterday was a late night so we were unable to blog, but here is a quick synopsis of what occurred yesterday. The morning was the same as usual, but then we sank our cinder blocks and helped the marine 1 guys plant coral to them. This was a fun yet challenging activity. We were forced to...

Deep dive and coral re-plantation

Today was another fascinating day. Today we woke up as usual and went to breakfast. We enjoyed a nice quick and light breakfast in preparation for our awesome day. We had a long day in front of us and needed a quick breakfast. Casey prepared the perfect platter of fruit and cereal. Following breakfast we...

Eventful day 3 on the island

Once again woken up around 7:30, but this time by Mr Kirby. I was experiencing a tremendous sleep, so I was frustrated to have to awake, but once I remembered that today we would be diving in and snatching turtles I was ready to go. Once again we were treated to a nice quick breakfast. We...

Day 2 in paradise

We enjoyed a great night. After returning to our cabin, Chris, Buck, and I continued playing poker. This game carried on until...

The people down in the British Virgin Islands made the trip so enjoyable and I just could not pass up the opportunity to relive my first experience in a new way. The diving and snorkeling was something I had never...

The week has come to a close

Wow! What a week. I can not believe it is already over, very possible that it was the quickest week of my life. Not only was this the quickest week but one of the best. This week was awesome, filled with a variety of activities such as diving 80 ft deep to playing frisbee on the beach. This week...

Final day of diving here in the BVI

Final day of diving was today and it was a good one. Today was not just any ordinary dive; today we actually cut off and saved different corals that were in danger of dying and re-planted them in places where they could survive. The two types of coral we planted were Staghorn coral and Elkhorn coral, both of which...

Day 4 in BVI

Day 4 here might have just been my favorite day yet. It was awesome. Once we woke up we immediately headed to the boat where we were about to make our first dive of the day. This dive was so cool to me because we dove at a shipwreck site. We were able to actually swim through the different...
