Cooper Island to the wreck of the Rhone, back to Cooper Island
The new divers completed confined water dives 2 & 3. Snorkel kids had fun and saw some interesting fish and coral and ship parts at the RMS Rhone wreck. In the food world, muffins, pizza bagels, and fruit smoothies were the highlights. Girls had a great time in watersports having fun and wakeboarding, and Reagan got up for the first time!
At the same time, the boys went out to tag some turtles. Last summer and thus far this summer, only two kids have caught a turtle. Around mid-afternoon a group of Patrick, Ishaan, and Nate found a turtle and to the amazement of the instructors, Ishaan dove and caught a turtle. Later, after that turtle was released, a group of Ishaan,Nate and Zach found a turtle and quickly after Nate dove down and caught a second turtle, slightly bigger than the first.
Two turtles in one day caught by kids!
Today our crew did a great job of catching green turtles, we need to work on applying sun screen. Our miracle moment was bringing turtles out of the water!
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.
