An early morning wake up started our day accompanied by the smell of breakfast and the sounds of divers getting ready to be picked up to finish up their certifications in the morning. The excitement was palpable to have them return to us in the afternoon as certified divers! The rest of the crew prepared our beloved boat to sail to our first docking, Scrub Island!
Once we arrived to our destination successfully, it was time for a deep clean of the boat before we could have our phones handed back to us to brag to loved ones back home about all the adventures we’ve been having.
On shore, everyone enjoyed playing in the multiple pools and water slide that the beautiful resort thrilled us with, shopping in the boutique, and munching on some snacks and sodas from the local deli.
After shore time, it was time for land showers which everyone deeply appreciated and a dinner of sloppy joe’s. With some time to hang out with the other boats in our fleet, eventually it was time to power down for rest to prepare us for another big day on program tomorrow.
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.
