This morning, we woke up at Cooper Island and began our day with English muffins, scrambled eggs, and sausage. After breakfast, our Open Water Divers headed to shore to continue their course and our non-divers went to Cistern Rock for a beautiful snorkel! Everyone gathered again on shore for a bit before lunch to hang out, too. We then came back to I Am Free where we had lunch and swam to Venture (one of the Alpha adventure boats) to retrieve the float toys that our friends on Alpha playfully stole yesterday!
In the afternoon, Discover scuba divers got a chance to dive while everyone else did water sports and hung out on shore. Later on, we all headed back to I Am Free for boat showers and dinner. After dinner, everyone relaxed and hung out in hammocks before we powered down and got to bed!
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.
