Day 10- First Open Water Dive
Posted: Fri, Jul 18, 2014
Location: Mountain Point, Virgin Gorda
After the blog was written last night, we were out on deck when I saw a flash reflecting in the water. It turned out to be a bunch of tarpon feeding right under our boat! Somebody lowered a camera on video inside the water on a string We all sat out watching them for about an hour. This morning we had cereal and began another rotation day. On Tiger Pause we worked on man overboard drills and had a sail chat. Then, after a lunch of grilled cheese, there was waterskiing and wakeboarding. Finally we made our way to Gemini to prepare for our first open water dive. The closer I got to the bottom the more excited I got. There were so many things hiding between the coral but we did not see any turtles or squid like some previous dive groups. Back at the boat we got fresh water showers and made our summer Thanksgiving. We might watch a movie as a treat in a few minutes. All in all, a pretty good day.
