This morning we woke up and started off the day with a delicious meal of oatmeal and eggs. After breakfast the staff headed off to a meeting. We did a great clean up and had a little free time to organize and play games. When the staff came back five Odyssea shipmates joined us and we ventured out to the Chickuzin wreck, a Chinese refrigerator ship. It was a bumpy ride but it was well worth it. On the ride down we saw schools of flying fish. We got to the Chickuzin, jumped in as soon as we could and descended. We saw massive schools of beautiful fish along with four eagle rays and many barracuda. After the three minute stop it was time to get out. Getting out of the water was the tricky part. We had to work around the massive swells and eventually we all got our safely. We put away our dive gear and headed to Muskmelon Bay, where we snorkeled our night dive site. After planning our navigation techniques for the dive our fresh, clean laundry was returned to us. We were all overjoyed to have our laundry back! After putting away our laundry we sat down for a dinner of Asian Teriyaki noodles and waited til the sun set so we could plug in for a third night dive that would guarantee our certification!
