Location: Marina Cay, British Virgin Islands

Today we had some delicious pancakes for breakfast, followed by a check-out dive for the uncertified divers. The certified divers got some free time onboard to chill out in the hammocks on the bow while the others dove. Then we had tuna bagels for lunch. Following lunch, we had a basic seamanship class, which explained the basic dynamics of the sail and the points of sail. Then we had a second dive where everyone went out to coral gardens. The uncertified practiced their open water skills, such as mask clearing and buddy breathing. While the certified divers got to explore the reef a little. We saw some trumpet fish and a small Hawkeye turtle. After diving, we packed the boat up and moved from Mountain point to Marina Cay, a short motor downwind. There we had vegetarian chili for dinner, which was very tasty. After dinner, we had our first night out at Pusser’s, which was a very cool bar right on the water.
