Chalpha Day 3

Early in the morning most people were awake by 6:30. After preparing the boat, we set sail to The Bight, on Norman Island. Once we ate our buffet breakfast and arrived at our final destination, the divers left to go scuba the Spyglass Wall and Rainbow Canyon; it was incredible!
While the divers were gone, Rodrigo, Caitlin, and Ally went on a hike with the other non-divers on fleet. After the beautiful hike, we came back to the boat to make some delicious pizza bagels for lunch, which everyone loved! The morning divers then swapped to do water sports in the afternoon and some of the people from the hike in the morning went diving. Travis and Don went tubing and had a gnarly wipeout, which was the funniest moment of the day!
After the afternoon activities, Lucas spotted a four-foot long barracuda that scared us all. For dinner, we ate some messy but yummy burritos. To wind down for the day the whole fleet went to shore for a social where we got some dessert and virgin drinks and ending the night with a game of beach volleyball and a lesson on how the islands were formed!    

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.
