Location: Admiralty Bay, Bequia

Today we woke up to a beutiful Bequian sunrise. We all anjoyed a fantsictic breakfast as the warm sun and breeze made the perfect climate. Bequia seems to have slightly more unpredictable weather patterns than some of the other islands, but we love the wind and occasional showers. We were all super excited for the day which lay ahead.

The classes we had today were Marine Biology, Oceanography and Nautical Science. The detail and application of all the courses onbooard is so incredible, but being able to instantly look and apply everything that is learned is such an incredible part of this experience. We learned about energy transfer in oceanography; mamals and birds in marine bio and charting in seamanship.

After the class we were all so excited to go on the first wreck dive this program. Being exposed to such a beutiful marine enviroment as well as many different types of diving, makes every dive compleatley different and so much fun. The wreck we went to was a 30m Tug boat of the Devils Table Point in Bequia. Thanks to the fantastic dive instuctors this was a more challenging and technical dive, that the group did great on. On the dive site we saw so many marine creatures including garden eels, trumpet fish, parrot fish, barracuda and the remenece of a resident octopus. pretty coooooool!

Tonights dinner was a pie which was so awsome. Food on boats can be simple, but having a crust on a pie full of fresh local vegetables and protines is such a brilliant treat that we are so furtunate to have on ocean star. The squeeze question tonight was… You have to train some dogs for a service job that isn’t currently real. I said that I would train golden retrivers to rescue people from ball pits. I think I would enjoy honing the agility and recovery skills of a puppy jumping into a ball pits all day.

It is so fantastic to eat together every eveing and get to know just a bit more about each other. I think tonight will bring some bright stars and will be a great night to sit anchor watch.
