Fun at the Baths!

This morning we woke up to Justin Beiber’s “Boyfriend.” After waking up we had a breakfast of oatmeal as we set sail for one of the coolest places of the trip; the Baths! Because we’re the best boat we arrived at the Baths first so we killed time by having Sam drive donuts in the dinghy. When we got to the beach we began to explore! We climbed under and over the huge rock formations, and saw some amazing sights (and took some fantastic pictures!). After having some fun and meeting new people from other boats we got back in the dinghy and returned to our boat then set off for Spanish Town. When we arrived we all had lunch at port, and bought some souvenirs and groceries. After that we set off for our final destination for the day, Mountain Point. When we arrived we got out our fins, masks, and snorkels and started rescue training session 2! First, we practiced throwing flotation devices to distressed divers from the boat and then we practiced in water rescues where we swam to the diver with our flotation devices while making sure to remain a safe distance. Then we took our showers and swam around some more and played with some moon jellies! After showers we had a dinner of garden burgers, beans and mash. Now that we’ve all cleaned up we’re about to start watching a PADI video to learn about search and recovery diving! Rescue diving is the best!
