Location: Ko Wai, Thailand

Today we woke up to a heart-healthy breakfast of oatmeal; prepared by chefs Evan and Eliot. After getting all of the dive gear out of the lazarette, we broke into two groups for our first open water dive session. Although none of the staff had dived in this particular spot before, it was said to be good. While the first group dove, the rest of the shipmates headed towards shore for some exploring/jungle hiking. Right before lunch, we caught some of Boomer’s windsurfing and later got to see Kevin too. The afternoon was the reverse schedule of the morning; divers went to shore and vice versa. Just before dinner, we prepared Argo to motor towards Ko Chang tomorrow morning and set off for our second MTE class at 7:30.
