Today Mega Fleet awoke bright and early at 6:45 at Cooper Island which means one thing: DIVE DAY!!! Veronica and Alex cooked a delicious breakfast of french toast and Dreamer got ready for a day full of diving and snorkeling! 

After dropping off the Advanced Open Water and Open Water candidates at Cooper Island, Dreamer sailed over to Salt Island under the leadership of our skipper of the day—Jazzy. Lydia went on to dive the RMS Rhone wreck with Sail Caribbean Divers and the other AOW campers. The rest of the fleet hopped on Dreamer and practiced anchoring at Salt Island. They learned about coral and went on a quick snorkel around the area to check out an amazing coral reef, then back to Cooper to grab a mooring ball again! 

Clare, Sammy, and Jazzy made avocado egg bagel sandwiches for lunch and they were so good! After a scrumptious lunch, the fleet went on shore for ice cream, retail therapy, diving, beach time, and water sports! Holden and Ami saw some colorful fish, turtles, sting rays, and barracudas while diving. Later, the group came back to Dreamer and had a shower party. During the shower, the campers looked to the shore and saw a group of goats! They were so cute and you could hear them all the way from the boat!

After getting squeaky clean, Winston and Raine made a delicious Taco Salad for everyone and had a quiet night full of laughter and fun team-building games!

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.
