Location: Koh Tao, Thailand

Today started a little later than usual as we motored to the other side of the island. After breakfast, we had an Oceanography class about light and sound in the ocean. Later, we did a dive to get research for our group projects. In the afternoon, we had free time to go to shore, but everyone decided to stay on the boat, which may have been a good decision as pouring rain passed through. During the sudden rain and wind, we had to take down the tarps that give us shade, which can be harder than normal when the wind catches them like sails. To close the day, we have our Basic Seamanship midterm after dinner.
