Day 7: Gregory Pope

Our final day started the same as any other day with breakfast. We were thrown a small curveball because of the massive waves coming in from a small storm so we had to take a bus to where the boats were docked. We left at 8 instead of our usual 7:45 departure and headed to the new dock inside...

Day 6: Gregory Pope

We are coming to the end of the trip and only have one more day of diving which is pretty disappointing. The trip has seemed to fly by and I have lost count of the days. Today was my favorite day of diving because we dove at shipwrecks called the Kittiwake and the Doc Poulson. The Kittiwake, a shunken...

Day 5: Gregory Pope

Today was a similar day to our third day in the Caymans. We did another 2 tank dive at our regularly scheudled time of 7:30 departure and headed to the reefs Lee had selected. We started with a dive at Little Tunnel which had a max depth of 100. Lee, and especially the teachers, put strong emphasis on this...

Day 4: Gregory Pope

Another early alarm at 6:50 woke me up to get to breakfast at 7. The mornings are always pretty quite since everyone is exhausted. Today was another busy day and we had very little down time. We hopped on the Twin Sister, our dive boat, with Lee amd Lucy and headed to our first dive site of the day...

Day 3: Gregory Pope

We had a usual start to the day with breakfast at 7 and then gathering gear for another 2 tank dive. We had the same divemasters, Lee and Lucy, and went straight to our first dive sight at Bonnie's Arch. Our briefing included the usual descriptions of the layout, a max feet cap of 70 feet, and a dive...

Day 2: Gregory Pope

Today was an early start to the day beacause we had a 2 tank dive. We were awake and at breakfast by 6:45 which is very early from what I am used to but it was 100% worth it. At 7:30 we were given our first dive meeting to discuss precautions on the boat and how dives will go...

Day 1: Pope

Today we started adjusting to the climate of the water by snorkeling off the pier at the resort. My Buddy, Jack Blase and I began looking for fish in the crevices of the rocks. We found sea urchins, banded butterfly fish, juvenile sargeant majors, and even a baracuda. This was our first exposure to the marine life and even...
