Marine Biology II Day 4 Footage

I got to hang out with my boys from Marine Biology II today, (I was missing them) and here are some photos and video from our morning dives. Love Doc

Day 5 and 6 in BVI

Day 5 on BVI came and went so fast that we were unable to write blogs, so let me summarize yesterday before kicking off Day 6. Soon after waking up we found ourselves at the harbor, setting up our dive equipment and heading out to perform the coral transplant. Using huge underwater balloons, we dropped our artificial reefs into...

Cooper Island Adventure (ಠ_ಠ)

This morning I was woken up at 6am by screeching chickens, yay. I promptly fell asleep right after that however, and was woken up by Doc an hour later. Andrew, Julian, and I got ready and walked down to the cattle guard to wait for everyone else to arrive. We all got on the taxi and headed toward the...

MB 2 – Day 2

After being awoken by Dr. Gruninger and hopping in the shower, I found my body going into a hypothermic state for newbie Nick Byrne had once again pulled a rookie move and had taken all of the hot water. I shrugged off this small inconvenience and headed to a breakfast full of enormous donuts. After breakfast we went to...

Day3

Today was a fairly big day. We started with breakfast at the commissary again and listen to a great presentation from our friend, Dr. Shannon Gore. Dr.Gore's presentation focused on the different species of turtles found in the BVIs and there life cycles. Apparently loggerheads have five scutes on the back rather than the typical four and leather backs...

BVI Day 4

We started off the day by going down to Casey's office and have a wonderful feast of yogurt, pears, mangos, and granola bars down by the marina. Once we fed all the nearby chickens Pop-Tarts, Marine Bio 2 got onto Sea Dragon and headed over to a dive site called "Wreck Alley" in Deep Chromis off the coast of...

Day 2 in the BVI

Day 2 Great second day in the BVI. I was woken by the crow of the obnoxious rooster at 7 AM. Though it was early, a quick shower got me ready for the day. After packing my snorkel, fins, and new underwater camera, I headed down to the commissary for a quick breakfast. I was met there by Casey...

Marine Bio Week 1

1) I signed up for marine biology II because I really enjoyed the class and the trip last year and I wanted to get more advanced and in depth with material, the credit was just the cherry on top. I'm looking forward to the night dive on the trip because night dives are the scariest and al...

BVI Nights 1 & 2

Upon arriving to the BVIs, Killian, Andrew, and I were exhausted, and went to bed after devouring our Max n' Cheese dinner provided to us. However, after Andrew found two spiders climbing on him while he was in bed, we found an enormous Tailless Whip-Tale Scorpion hiding out in a corner of our room. After annihilating the arachnid with...
