Location: Great Harbor Peter, BVI

Today we left Gorda Sound at 6 am before most people were awake. We had cereal for breakfast underway to Salt Island. We were briefed on our dive of the Rhone. The Rhone was a British sailing vessel with a steam engine that sunk in 1867. It was torn in half during a hurricane when it smashed into the rocks of Salt Island and sunk to the bottom. Many people died, and only five crew and one passenger survived. We were split into four dive groups, two before lunch and two after. Those that weren’t diving were allowed to go to shore for a while and explore if they chose to. We moved to Great Harbor Peter around 3:30, showered around 4, and had an early dinner at 5 o’clock. We have our OCE final exam at 6 pm, and tonight one dive group will do the Culmination Dive on the wreck of the Fearless, while the rest will do it tomorrow.
