Day 7

At last we have reached the final day of this amazing adventure. The two dives today were pretty simple, not too deep and both he nice reefs. Despite these dives draining my last bits of energy, they were ultimately worth it because we finally got to see a sea turtle in the wild. He was small and alone, but...

We met our dive masters, Curtis and Bernie, who...

Day 1

After an early morning alarm, two flights, and a bus drive, we arrived at Cobalt Coast Resort, ready to explore the enticing waters. To begin our experience, we snorkeled off the shore of the resort with a buddy. Ben Levis, my partner, and I were very excited to get into the water and swim around. We started to...
