Location: Cooks Bay, Moorea

Today we finally got Argo out of the marina. To get used to the boat in passage we motored about 2 hours to Moorea. We had our first Marine Bio class and started our species log books. We snorkeled in Cook’s Bay and saw a huge variety of tropical Pacific Marine life. To refuel after our long, strenuous day in the tropics we feasted on some delicious homemade lasagna and garlic bread. After dinner we had some time before our guest speaker Shane (a Marine Bio major from New Zealand researching in Moorea) boarded and gave us a presentation on his work regarding competition between two species of fish on the reef. Afterwards we went over the first few chapters in our Open Water Dive books and were immediately in bed sleeping.
