Today’s morning activity was turtle tagging. This involved being towed behind a dingy until one of the endangered species was spotted. Next a wild goose chase occurred. Shipmates would snorkel around trying to shepard the turtle towards shallow water when one would try and grab it. One turtle was caught and named Ted! We tagged and measured it and then released it. After lunch the already certified had a check out dive, while us new divers completed our confined water course. After these sessions everyone returned to the boat where shipmates combined acrobatics with salt water showering off the starboard side of Ocean Star.
