Another early rise for another morning spent diving the BVI! The second dive of the morning was definitely a fan favorite with the canyon of coral we swam through, a large nurse shark (which I may or may not have thought was a snake at first), and the overall amazing vibe from the group.
The sail to Little Harbor on Peter Island went very smoothly and everyone feels so much more confident sailing and it’s only day five!
Little Harbor is like an image of a dream. Calm, clear waters and baby sea turtles (one with three fins!) surround our boat as we try to take everything in. A couple of the crew members tried out the whole watersports thing and lets just say, we’re excited to get better 🙂 Dancing, singing and smiles ended out the night as always.
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.
