Location: Tortola, BVI
Finally, time to start our adventure, Ocean Star was looking as shiny and beautiful as ever, and the staff eagerly awaited the arrival of the summer 40-day crew. From mid-day on, they showed up in bunches, fresh off the airplane or the ferry from St. Thomas. Everyone has packed away their things into their bunks, gotten their dive gear organized in the Laz, and explored the main areas of their new home for the next 40 days. We all got together for our first squeeze and meal, and of course, lots of chit-chat as we got to know each other, learned about all of the things we have in common, and all of the cool talents and awesome experiences that our shipmates have had. It's just the beginning, and we are excited to really get started tomorrow with the program!
