Getting Shown the Rhone

We began the day with a breakfast at the marina. After eating, we headed out about 20 minutes away. Once we got there, we discussed how we would be collecting and transplanting coral. We first went on a snorkel to scout out any potential areas where coral might be in need of rescuing. After returning to the boat, we...

Diving in The Ginger’s Backside

I woke up today exhausted from the previous day of diving. I fought the temptation to lay back in bed and got dressed and packed up for the day. Then, with the rest of my cabin, I walked to the cattle guard to meet up with the rest of the group. Once we all got gathered we went to...

Good day it was today

Anyways my cabin and I were the last ones to get to the cattle guard, where everyone would meet. Then we went to breakfast and that was delicious, had some banana...

Becoming British in the BVI, Day 1

Well the flight from Dallas was fun, or as fun as a flight can be I guess. and I slept on sections of the last two flights (the one from Puerto Rico to the BVI was a propeller plane, which I thought was cool). But talking about sleeping on a plane would make a boring blog, so I guess...

The Fourth and Fifth Day

Saturday and Sunday were both pretty fun, but I liked Sunday a lot more. Saturday we harvested coral for replanting and we planted it. The planting of said coral was actually quite difficult, because you had to have perfect buoyancy to be able to tie the little piece of coral to the spot we were planting them on. You...

Tom Huber

I picked marine biology this summer for a getaway vacation away from the family. Although I have no previous diving experience, I believe it would be fun. The thing I am looking forward to the most is feeling weightless in the water.

Second day, gingers backside

After waking up at 7:00 A.M and an awesome breakfast, we heated over to the baths. These are huge basalt rocks which were formed millions of years ago by lava that seeped through cracks in the earth. As we climbed through the cracks, we saw xenoliths which were rocks that froze in the lava while it...

Turtles, Turtles, and More Turtles: Deluxe Edition

The day began similarly to yesterday in that we didn't have to wake up to the sound of a rooster. We then went back to the main building to have doughnuts that could have passed for tires. During breakfast, Dr. Gore came to give a presentation over turtles and the importance of the tagging. We then split into boat...

Being at Savannah Bay means it’s a good day

Today I woke up by the annoying rooster calls. I immediately got my stuff together and went to the cattle guard to meet everyone. Once there we gathered in a community room at Guavaberry, there we ate some donuts and cereal. After breakfast we had Dr. Gore give us a presentation about sea turtles. I learned a lot about...
