Location: Savannah Bay, BVI

The day began at 7:00am for the entire crew with breakfast in beautiful Savannah Bay, Virgin Gorda. After feasting down we received word that today will be our first dive session since we arrived on Ocean Star and for most, the first dive session ever. After morning chores the crew eagerly put their dive equipment together and got ready for the first session. For the new divers you could feel the excitement and anxiety radiating off them. After the first session though, the nerves and jitters had disappeared and the divers where eager to get in for session two. The more experience divers had a check out dive in the morning, followed by learning how to properly operate a dinghy while waiting for the new divers to finish up their lessons. Once all the divers were out of the water, it was time for a family sit down dinner on the deck accompanied by the BVIs’ beautiful ocean, wildlife and a spectacular sunset. After everyone’s bellies were filled we were all eager to jump into bed and call it a night, so to be well rested for tomorrow’s big day.
