Day 4 was a very busy day for the divers aboard Charlie and Bravo’s Rioja and Fermi. The day started in typical Caribbean fashion with beautiful sunshine and a breakfast buffet. The Advanced Open Water divers then headed off to Angelfish Reef and Rainbow Canyon for two amazing dives. Meanwhile, the rest of the crew hiked up to the helicopter pad at the top of Norman Island for a fleet photoshoot with one of our photographers, Ryan, some fun group games and an amazing view. The rest of the morning was spent learning about some marine science, relaxing on the beach, and rotations of all sorts of water sports.
After a lunch of pesto pasta, the Open Water divers headed to shore for their second confined water dives. The rest of us headed to Spyglass to continue the rotations of water sports, sailing Opal Bella, bracelet making, or relaxing. When the divers returned from their confined water dives, we all showered and prepared steak stir-fry for dinner! Following dinner, we headed to shore for a social at the restaurant on the beach for drinks and desserts. Once we had all had our fill of dessert, we gathered on the beach for boat meeting. Each boat was prompted to prepare to bring their personal goals to boat meeting tomorrow evening when we will be at Nanny Cay!
The greatest challenge during the program was staying entertained during the quarantine period. Not being able to leave your boat and not having a phone, which was a crutch against boredom, it was difficult at first to stay entertained.
