Turtle tagging and wake boarding

Most of the crew woke up early this morning for a little extra study time for our oceanography final, which was taken after breakfast. This was followed by our oceanography research project presentations. Matt and Audrey whipped up a fantastic lunch of bagels and cream cheese, and then we split up to take a break from studying, either wakeboarding/waterskiing or turtle tagging. the rest of the afternoon was spent doing chart-work in preparation for our coastal navigation exam tomorrow morning. After dinner we prepared our dive gear and set out for our final dive = super culmination; night, deep, wreck dive of the Fearless. Huge crabs and a tiny octopus were spotted, and the divers returned to Ocean Star for freshly baked brownies. Kate taught us how to make glow stick lanterns from our night dive glow sticks, and the rest of the night was spent doing final MTE reviews.
