Day 19- Diving The Rhone
Posted: Mon, Jul 25, 2016
Location: The Bight, Norman Island
Today we started off the day by motoring to the Rhone wreck. Then we set up our dive gear and ate breakfast. When we started the dive, the visibility was amazing and we went to a depth of 68 feet. The Rhone was split into two parts. The first swim was through the bow of the boat and we saw a ton of fish. The second swim through was the stern of the boat and you had to have good buoyancy because it was very narrow. During the swim through, if you looked to the right, there was a bunch of different fish huddled together in a tiny area. The current was really strong so you always had to know where you were. After the dive, most of the shipmates took their IYT cert test. After that, we hiked to Salt Island. We saw the salt ponds, and when we got to the top the view was so pretty. After the hike, we hung out on Caribbean Soul for a long time and by the end, we were all so hungry. As soon as we got back to Curls, we motored to the Bight. Then the staff went to a meeting and we took fresh water showers and made dinner. We ate dinner when they got back and now we are starting to clean the boat so that we will have less to do tomorrow. Later we are doing a project, but they wont tell us what it is yet. All in all, today was a great day with the dive, the hike and the amazing view.
