Bravo 2, Charlie 2, Delta 2, Foxtrot 2, and Sierra 2: Day 20 – Hodge's Creek Marina via the Baths

By wpdev August 8, 2021

Day 20

Students enjoyed a nice lie-in, as it was an early morning for the staff who up-anchored for the morning motor from Trellis Bay/Long Bay to the Baths. The Baths are the most visited location in the BVI, and with good reason! They are a spectacular geological collection of granite boulders that formed back when volcano’s were still active in the BVI.

Students had a lesson on the formation of the Baths and then continued on to a hike through the national park, stopping in a well known section called the Cathedral for a quick boat photo! Once they completed the hike, students snorkeled back to the beginning and for those who dared, they were able to leap from jump rock. A few students didn’t join us on the hikel, hike-snorkel, as they opted for one final dive in which they were saw a spotted eagle ray!

With the final cannonballs completed, it was time to head back to boats for lunch and our final sail. SOme boats swung by Cooper Island to pick up their students who went for a final dive before all boats finally made their way into Hodge’s Creek Marina for their last maneuver as a crew- docking. All the boats had flawless docking as none of the boats made direct contact with the dock!

Crews mustered together for a deep clean of their vessel before they made their way down the dock to the Sail Caribbean Divers shop. Lots of stickers, t-shirts, and hats made their way out of the shop .. supposedly as gifts for relatives!

All shopped out, it was time to call home before the dinner-bell sounded. Our Provisions Managers had a mouthwatering array of ribs, Mac-and-cheese, and vegetables catered for our final meal.

Once dinner was completed, students were able to venture the dock and mingle with their friends from other boats and write each other letters to be read on their flights home. Before they knew it, it was time to head back to boats and to bed to get some rest for their travel day tomorrow.

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.
