All Good Things Must Come to an End~ Day 6

Today started off at around 8:00. Our schedule for today was a little bit different. We were going to eat breakfast at around 9:00 over at the teachers' cabin. For breakfast I had a huge chocolate donut and some apple juice. After we ate we had a couple of minutes before the Glenn came to pick us up at...

Day 5~ Jez Reef Round 2

Again the day started off with our usual routine: wake up, pack up, and head down to the cattle guard for the 8:00 taxi! For breakfast I had the bacon & cheese omelette again. After I finished dinner I went over to the Dive BVI shop and bought an awesome hat and shirt. Our plan for the day was...

All in a Day’s Work

Day 3 Recap Our day started as usual. We woke up, grabbed our stuff, and were on the taxi by 8:00. For breakfast I tried the hot oats with fruit. The fruit on this island is absolutely amazing! The oats were pretty good, but were second to the bacon and cheese omelette. After breakfast we had a briefing on sea...

Day 2- Camera Time

I woke up today at around 7:00, after an amazing night of well-needed rest. I got my gear packed up, got dressed, and was down at the cattle guard by 7:45. We had the best breakfast today at a restaurant near the Marina. We actually have a couple of choices for breakfast. This morning I ordered a bacon and...

Day 1~ Reunited

After a long day of travel, I had slept through the night like a baby. I woke up right around 6:30, got situated, and then decided that I would get some pictures of our view in the early morning. After a few minutes of taking pictures the roosters started to crow, which waked the remainder of my cabin (Andrew...

I am taking Marine Bio 2 because I really enjoyed Marine Biology last year! I want to continue scuba diving throughout the rest of my life as a hobby and hopefully retire as a dive instructor one day.

Saving the Coral Populations and Diving the RMS Rhone!

The day started at 7:30 today! We had an 8:00 taxi to the Marina and we were told to be at the cattle guard by 7:45. We had breakfast at the marina today; I ate a banana, banana bread (cake), a cinnamon apple nutrigrain bar, and, of course, Pops. We then loaded our BCDs and regs into the boat....

Day 3: Chasing turtles

I just wanted to start this blog off with a HUGE thanks to the dive BVI staff for everything they have done so far and to Dr. Gore who gave us a great turtle tagging (or chasing in my case) experience and presentation. Today I woke up at about 7:20 again and headed down to the cattle guard at...

Nothing like a “Bath” with the Fishes

Today was another fantastic day! I woke up at around 7:20 this morning, which was nice. I guess I am progressively adapting to the warm, humid environment. We came down to the cattle guard and then went over to the Internet cafe to grab breakfast. For breakfast I had Pops, banana bread (which was like cake), yogurt, and a...
