BVI Day 6

Today is our last day in the Virgin Islands. And boy was it a hot one. I have no idea what the temperature is, but it's crazy. Anyway, we had our final breakfast today at the teachers cabin. It was the leftovers from our previous breakfasts (cereal, honey buns, guava juice, granola bars). After that we headed down...

BVI Day 5

That same gosh darn rooster woke me up at 6:00 again. This is like the 3rd or 4th day in a row. I don't like chickens. They are all over the island. I see at least one every time I walk outside.

Our boat dropped anchor in the middle of a huge beach. It was also near a resort. Me and Cole were partners. We started...

Dive no.2 however, made up for it. We collected data from 9 different barrel sponges. I also saw a pufferfish. Before we returned to land, me and...

We visited a dive site near Ginger Island, known as Ginger's backside. My group measured and recorded the filtration habits of different barrel sponges. It was surprisingly difficult to measure...

BVI Day 1

Today was my first official dive in the British Virgin Islands. We explored a large collection of coral reefs near the Dog Islands. Our dive instructors told us about how many of the natives thought the island was filled with rabid dogs. Upon further exploration however, the island was found to be a habitat for Monk Seals. Sadly, these...
