Day 5 and 6 in BVI

Day 5 on BVI came and went so fast that we were unable to write blogs, so let me summarize yesterday before kicking off Day 6. Soon after waking up we found ourselves at the harbor, setting up our dive equipment and heading out to perform the coral transplant. Using huge underwater balloons, we dropped our artificial reefs into...

Day 4 in BVI

Kind of getting used to waking up to the deep voice of Mr. Kirby and his cup of coffee. Soon enough, however, we found ourselves having breakfast and getting ready to head out to sea. After a quick brief from Casey, my dive buddy Buck and I did our buddy checks and we took the dive into a site...

Day 3 in BVI

Man oh man was this morning early. I'm almost sure I didn't sleep more than a few minutes. Anyway, after a nice breakfast and a very well done presentation from Dr. Shannon Gore on sea turtles, we packed up and headed out to try and tag some ourselves. In the presentation Dr. Gore mentioned how over time sea...

Day 2 in the BVI

Another bright and early morning, another wake up call from Doc, and another beginning to a wonderful BVI day. After starting the day off with a fresh shave, an overwhelming hunger came about my person. We took a short walk to the main office of Guavaberry Hotel, where we met Casey for breakfast --donuts the size of...

Day One in BVI

Man oh man is traveling through the San Juan Airport fun. But, no matter how long and brutally bad sitting on multiple runways having your plane fixed in front of you is, there's singular thing that all Marine Biology 2 guys and our teachers were eagerly awaiting, a hug from Casey, a sarcastic remark from Jeff, a "hi-hi"...

Dallas – Week One Blog

I signed up for Marine Biology for the second year for a few reasons; the amazing opportunity to visit a foreign country with your high school class, connect with people living in a completely different world than your own, and further my knowledge of our earth and how it all works together. The opportunity to travel to BVI...

Last Blog

There are certain experiences that an individual goes through that they will keep with them for the rest of their lives. Personally, I have had a few. Germany with my soccer team, Costa Rica with my family and Chicago with my Aunt and Uncle. Marine Biology 2012 will without a doubt make that list. I...

Day 5 on Virgin Gorda

Today we began the day knowing that it would be our final day of diving. So we tried to make it a good one. After a little shopping right after we woke up, we all hopped aboard our boats and set off for Long Bay. We snorkeled around a little to check out the place we would be transplanting...

Day 4 on Virgin Gorda

What a fantastic day in Virgin Gorda. For the first time this trip I woke to the soothing yet exciting, world renowned Spanish speaker, and the most fantastic basketball coach on the trip, Señor Nevitt. Today was a day packed full of water. There was never a period of 2 hours that we were not wet in some...
