This morning, we woke up in Dead Man’s Bay and made a yummy breakfast buffet including bagels, yogurt, local jams, and mangos! This breakfast fueled the Open Water divers for another certification dive while the remaining crew members sailed to the Indians for a Fish ID lesson and a snorkel.

After a morning dive and snorkel activities, both groups met back up together at the Pirate’s Bight on Norman Island. Once on the ball at the Bight, a lunch of pesto pasta was made and enjoyed by all. The afternoon was filled with more diving for Advanced divers, Open Water divers and fun divers! Non-divers hiked to the helipad at the top of Norman Island for some team-building games and fantastic views across the Sir Francis Drake channel.

After afternoon activities ended, it was time to prepare a dinner of taco salad complete with peppers, tomatoes, beef, onions, lettuce, sour cream, salsa and local hot sauce! The crew was then motivated to eat dinner and clean their boat in record time because we were having a social ashore fleet-wide! Onshore, students indulged in virgin pina coladas and virgin daiquiris. After a very active day and a fun evening ashore, the crew was ready for a good night of sleep!

Photos are being collected from fleet this afternoon and will accompany this post later this evening! We appreciate your patience.
