Location: Green Island, Antigua
I roused the crew at 7 am for a breakfast of eggs and muffins, compliments of Mark and Snoop. We departed English Harbour at 8 am sharp and motored our way past the coastal Fort Berkley. Much like our passage to Antigua a few days ago, the sea was rough, and the swells occasionally splashed over the bow. Staying about 1 mile offshore, we motored the 8 miles to Green Island, which we entered cautiously due to shallow reefs. Luckily we had the Birdman’s sharp eyes in the crow’s nest as a lookout. Today was also our final dive for our advanced certification. The Underwater Navigation dive lasted almost an hour and was smooth for all. The culmination of the day was a beach cook-out and a campfire, which we all enjoyed after the hustle and bustle of English Harbour.
