Night Snorkeling and Lionfish Executions

Day 5: Yesterday morning (we didn't have time to write a blog yesterday) we got up and took a trip to the marina where we had breakfast at Casey's office and hung around the marina until it was time to go. We started to move our dried cement blocks to the boat for the artificial reef plant. The trip to...

Cooper Island Adventure (ಠ_ಠ)

This morning I was woken up at 6am by screeching chickens, yay. I promptly fell asleep right after that however, and was woken up by Doc an hour later. Andrew, Julian, and I got ready and walked down to the cattle guard to wait for everyone else to arrive. We all got on the taxi and headed toward the...

3 Dive Sites and Cheeseburgers

Today we woke up at the same time (me about 10 minutes late since I can't wake up for my life) and packed our gear for the day. We walked to the commissary to eat breakfast and meet Dr. Gore for a presentation on the 4 different types of sea turtles in the BVI - Loggerhead, Green, Hawksbill, and...

Cockroach Island and dat kayak

Today we woke up at 7:10 and got ready for the day. We walked to the commissary where Casey met us with fruit and donuts the size of small cakes. I ate 3 much food and waddled to the taxi for the marina. Glen the taxi driver took us to the marina where we got on our boat and...

Nights 1 and 2

After sleeping for a solid 30 minutes before waking up for my flight at 5:45 I was really not well-rested and was really hungry. Julian gave me his Pringles. We had a flight from Dallas to Miami, a 2 hour layover and another flight with another 3 hour layover and then a third flight from San Juan to Beef...

Friday Assignment

1) Why did you sign up for MBII and what are you looking forward to the most? I signed up for MBII because the first trip to the BVI was an extremely fun and incredible experience. I learned a lot more than I expected to on the trip and enjoyed it tremendously, and hope to have a repeat performance. The...

BVI Blog Day 5 – Last Dive :(

Today I woke up, with difficulty I would admit, at 7:20ish and walked down to the cattle guard. Glen, our taxi driver, drove us down to the marina where we got to go to the shops and look at souvenirs to buy before going on our dive. We ate breakfast on the marina, a delicious croissant, apple slices, banana...

BVI Blog Day 4

Today I woke up at around 7:30, got dressed, walked to the commissary, and posted the last blog. I ran back to the cattle guard just in time to see the taxi come. I hopped on with my friends and we headed off to the marina. At the marina, there was food waiting for us to eat. We ate...

BVI Blog Day 3

This morning I woke up with no chickens outside my window, surprisingly, and took a shower. I then went and uploaded my last blog, which I will probably do tomorrow morning as well. I put my iPad back in my room, and headed down to the cattle guard, and played frisbee with everyone for a few minutes. The taxi...
