Last Day

Today was the last day on Virgin Gorda, and we had a relaxing day. MB1 painted a mural, and MB2 hunted lionfish for a barbecue tonight. Once we finished the mural we ate lunch after watching Jeff filleting the lionfish they caught. They caught 10 in all, and Jeff had 3 frozen from the week before. Afterwards, we were...

Coral Planting

Doc woke us up today, because we were sleeping in. We had a lot to do today, because we headed out to the dive site today really early on. Today was coral planting day, and we worked in conjunction with MB2. MB1 dove first to find fragments of coral; we had heard that someone dropped anchor on coral, so...

The adventures in the RMS Rhone

During breakfast, Doctor Shannon Gore gave a presentation on sea turtles and the different kinds. It started to pour near the end of the presentation, and...

Afterwards, MB1 walked over to the Baths. Instead of entering the Baths, we took a side route to the Devils Bay. It...

7 – 16 – 13

Clayton woke us up at about 6:30-- unintentionally he claims. Grumbling, Gavin and I got dressed and all of us headed over to the Plum Tree cabin to see some of our classmates. It was 7:00, so everyone was just waking up and asking us (with a few expletives) why we were awake. At 7:45, the taxi driver Glenn...

Matt Mazzini

I joined this class to learn about marine life, and so that I could visit and dive in the Virgin Islands. I have been diving since I was 13, and in those five years I have gone on 7 dives in Cozumel and Cancun. Since the Virgin Islands seem to be like both Cancun and Cozumel, I am looking...
