This morning after a 7:30 am breakfast of Brioches prepared to perfection by Brendan and Katrina, we broke into 2 groups and prepared for our dive on which we would circumnavigate a small island. The dive was one of our best dives thus far. We saw numerous schools of fish, a very rare and endangered Nassar Grouper, a sea turtle, two enormous Eagle Rays and finally two sharks (a Nurse shark and a White Tip Reef shark). Des who has been looking for sharks from the beginning of the trip was in the second group and unfortunately they did not see the Sharks. After returning to the boat, we had sandwiches for lunch and then some of the crew went to do a little more exploring. We were all back on Ocean Star for the 15:30 Oceanography class which was followed by showers and dinner which was another tasty grill night. After dinner we all prepped the boat for the sail to Statia in the morning and had a Marine Biology class.
