It was a melancholy morning on Mahi Mahi. After a late night of writing cards to our shipmates, we woke up aware that today was our final day. We started our last morning together early, waking up at 7am, and proceeded to eat our cereal solemnly. We finished our clean up quickly and headed over to the Indians for our very last dive. Although this dive was like any other that we’ve been on previously, there was a strange feeling in the air, and no one really wanted to get out of the water After our dive, we started our boat cleaning. I think everyone was surprised how dirty the boat got over a span of three weeks. Soon enough after cleaning, the boat was as good as new and looked great. As we were cleaning we motored over to West End so when we arrived, we were able to walk around port. After spending some time with other boats, we gathered around Mike for the closing speech. Afterwards we headed over to the BBQ on the dock. There we said our last goodbyes to our friends on the other boats, then went back to Mahi to spend our last few hours together. Some tears were shed as we reflected on the memories we made, but it’s safe to say that they will last each and every one of us a lifetime.
