Today was fun packed and very busy. We had 3 dives, in addition to an hour-long lecture! Our first dive was in The Chimneys; this dive was incredible. The reefs were so beautiful and the organisms inhabiting them were remarkable. I also saw a ton of squirrel fish, sea urchins and fire coral. Unfortunately, I wasn’t there, but mu]y shipmates saw a shark and a ray! The second dive was 40 feet down to a “plane wreck”. This airplane was placed there intentionally for a movie. One by one, we swam through the interior and observed the habitat that this movie prop had provided. Next, we snorkeled the waters for natural landmarks, as we would need this knowledge for our night dive. Our last activity for the day was the night dive. I’ve never done this before, so I was a little nervous. However, I immediately conquered my fears as I realized how awesome night dives are.
