BVI 2016: Day 6

Today was a bitter sweet day. We had our very last day in the BVI. We started out our day with service. Usually I kind of try not to think about this day cause of all the hard work that comes with it. Spending time picking up trash and smelling weird smells in the heat isn't something I enjoy...

BVI 2016: Day 5

Today was a very fun day. We went out to one of the coolest dive sites that we saw on our trip. We went to a ship wreck that was overtaken by coral. The wreck ship was called the Rhone. The shop was built in 1865 and was declared unsinkable. It was one of the first ships to be...

BVI 2016: Day 4

Today we started out eating breakfast in the mango cabin. After breakfast we headed to the marina to start our second project dive.

After we finished...

BVI Dive Day 5: Trenches, Cleaning, and Presentations 

Today was very nervracking and exciting. We started out our day with sickness unfortunately. Two of our classmates came down with food poising the night before. But they soon felt better the next morning and we're back to normal. We started our diving for the day at rocky location that had many underwater trenches and passages. It was...

BVI Dive Day 4: Invertebrates, Turtle tagging, and Embarrasment.

Today was a much needed day. We were all really tired and today was a very relaxed day. Today we helped Casey, our lead marine biologist. She had told us that we were capturing invertebrates. We didn't capture any thing, pretty much Casey captured everything. We learned about arrow crabs, sea urchins, snails, and a fire worm that injects...
