Location: Barbados

Hello friends, families, and fans, Ben here!

Update from today

MG, Gabe D, Katie, and Elisabeth smashed it during their day of diving. They completed all their confined water dives for the open water course. I sat surface for these guys, and they looked like pros already. But obviously not as pro (yet) as our amazing Dive Master Candidate, Nat. She helped our instructor Gabe throughout the dives as well as the setup and pack down.
Meanwhile, the rest of the crew headed to shore and made the most of the amazing island that is Barbados. Some traveled far on the local buses to see as much as possible, like Peter. Some chilled in stunning beachside restaurants like Beau. Audrey, Ellie, Max, Elene, and Zoe headed to the supermarkets to buy snacks and then chilled on the beach. Meanwhile, Gabe G, Nolan, Nick, Brina, and Tim headed to Bridgetown to explore. Will, David, and Emma also hit the town, where they feasted on food from chicken shops and local bakeries.

The day ended with everyone sitting their second Marine Biology Exam. Ive never seen so much fish-themed Latin in one paper, and this crew took it in their stride. Their marks are yet to be released for this one, but its looking strong for everyone.

All the best from the Staff and Crew of Argo,

Till next time – Ben
