Day 12- Dolphins
Posted: Sun, Jul 20, 2014
Location: Muskmelon Bay, Guana Island
This morning after waking up just after 7, we ate scrambled eggs and motored out of Marina Cay. On the way we spotted dolphins and witnessed two of them swimming around the boat right below us. It was an unbelievable experience to witness two large dolphins so willingly interacting with us. We then practiced sailing for our practical exam to get our IYT sailing certificate. This was really useful and we were able to practice different points of sail and begin learning about how to handle a man overboard. Once we arrived at Muskmelon Bay our skipper Aaron let the boom out and attached a rope to it so we could swing off the edge of the boat and into the water. Everyone loved this and we even spotted a couple jellyfish during the swim. In Muskmelon Bay the chefs cooked up dinner and we ate chili and rice in front of a beautiful sunset.
