 Today, we awoke to the sight of jumping fish leaping out of the picturesque waters surrounding the reef at Marina Cay. We then enjoyed a delicious breakfast buffet whipped up by our very talented student chefs.

We then set out for our next exciting adventure to Trellis Bay where we we took a truck tour of the island of Tortola, this way we enjoyed the sights and sounds of the island by land and not only by sea! The views from the windy-roaded and greenery-filled mountains over the gorgeous bays and waterfronts were breath-taking. To top it all off, we ended the tour with some delicious ice cream from a local eatery.

We then returned to our boats before swapping onto the some of the catamarans in our fleet for a sail Mountain Point. This was an amazing chance for every student to gain some experience in sailing and in anchoring the different type of vessel.

We ended the evening enjoying some delicious dinner shortly followed by an amazing night snorkel among the bio luminescence in the crystal clear waters of the BVI.

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.
