Location: Gorda Sound, British Virgin Islands

Today we woke up and had a gourmet b-fast of cereal and yoghurt. After morning chores we had our first real class on oceanography. Then we all went snorkeling at Biras Creek and observed what lives in and around the mangroves. After a BLT lunch the open water divers finished up their confined water training and the advanced divers got their dinghy permits. We all relaxed on deck until dinner which was a spicy chili a la Dan and after dinner clean up we have an exciting evening that consists of a 1st aid and CPR class and homework.
