Final Day-Henry Droese

It's come to it, the final full day in the BVI. We began by waking up about fifteen minutes later than usual and setting up our cabin for breakfast. Along with the normal array of breakfast foods, we had the same massive donuts that we got last year on the final day. Afterwards, we went to a beach next...

Day Five-Henry Droese

The final day of diving today focused on the big wreck dive, the RMS Rhone. Once we reached the dive site, Casey gave us a rich history on the Royal Mail Ship and how it ultimately sank. Originally it was designated as a mail ship and moved to work the Caribbean Line in order to transport valuable goods such...

Day Four -HDroese

With all the diving today, our excursion was really enjoyable and exciting. We began today with going out to ginger hole for our first project dive. While on our way, the wind blew away Logan's hat and the waves got worse as we reached an exposed portion of the island. After getting in the water and venturing over to...

Day Three-Henry Droese

Today was great and exciting despite not diving. We began by going down to the wifi room to learn more about turtles from Dr. Gore, the tagging process, and what we'd be doing today. This included learning about which species are endangered and what the really means in the broad context of sea turtles. I also learned the...

Day Two -Henry Droese

Today, we grabbed our gear and headed for the reefs off of Cooper Island. As we went over to the dive site, we prepared the tools needed for our experiment: different noise making devices, dive slates, and cameras. Luckily, having cameras wasn't a problem thanks to the awesome Sealife cameras that Marine 2 received as a gift. Before diving,...

Day One-Henry Droese

Waking up this morning was the most difficult morning I've had all summer. Yesterday morning, we joked about the chickens around our cabin and their respective names, as well as other random moments from our classroom time a few weeks ago. Still feeling weathered from travel in the morning, my cabin made our way over to the meeting point...

H. Droese-  Final Day

The final full day in Virgin Gorda had started at bit later, precisely thirty minutes of extra sleep. After an amazing breakfast of massive donuts and juice, we headed toward the harbor in order to snorkel to the site of a previous shipwreck where the debris had been piled up on the shore. After getting to the area our...

H. Droese -Day 5

Today was the big day, the final day of scuba diving, project preparation, and the final presentation of our findings. Before all the preparation of our data, we had two dives to collect more data. Our first dive was at West Dog Island in order to collect more data between complex and simple reef systems. In the process we...
