Location: Salt Island, BVI
What a day! Having breakfast with the sunrise while sailing towards Salt Island was the best way to start the day. Today was a very exciting day for everyone as we had the chance to do our first wreck dive: the wreck was from the ship RMS Rhone which sank in front of Salt Island in 1867. Thanks to Meg’s detailed story of the historical background of the boat everyone had the chance, once down there, to imagine how the ship could have been back in the days. This is not all!! While wreck diving a couple of sharks and turtles joined us and made this the greatest dive so far. The variety of fish and corals was amazing and now thanks to our first marine bio classes we were also able to identify various species which made us all very proud. Some other achievements made the day so much better: Open Water students finally got certified, and in the afternoon some of us had the chance to go hiking on Salt Island and enjoy some time on land!! To finish off our day, we then moved to Spanish Town and had dinner all together while enjoying the sunset.
