Location: Pulau Kappas, Malaysia

After a good cereal breakfast, we all gathered for confined water dives. We mastered the basics of SCUBA at a great beach with the backdrop of a lush jungle high above us. The morning went smoothly, and we took a break for lunch, which was well prepared by Scott and ready when we arrived back on board. Oceanography class was right after the meal. Then we went straight back in the water for the final parts of our confined water dives. While trying to get a handle on some more complex dive skills, some of us looked like “total yard sales.” We all came out on top, though, along with plenty of laughs. Our day wound down with an expertly crafted dinner and a nautical science class. With confined water sessions out of the way, we’re all looking forward to the real diving!
