We woke up this morning only to discover orange hand sanitizer and green milk… we’d been pranked! After a breakfast of cereal, we sailed to wreck alley so we could lead our own dives on the astonishing wrecked ships. Along with the 4 ships we saw 3 sting rays and a lionfish. While we waited for our tanks to be pumped, we saw a ship on the horizon that was on fire. The US Coast Guard was quickly alerted by a nearby ship though. Soon after, we were joined by Pure Joy for a “fun activity”. Of course we heard WHITE SQUALL, meaning we had our second rescue scenario. Luckily, we were able to help all 3 divers. Pure Joy informed us that they had pranked us and several other boats. The prank war had begun! After they left, we continued to study for our rescue diver exam tonight. Many of us also went snorkeling. After we got out of the water, we sailed back to GHP. We continued to refresh our knowledge of DCI, DCS, air embolisms, pneumothorax, subcutaneous emphysema and mediastinal emphysema. Maddy led us through CPR and EFR scenarios. After our yummy dinner, we watched Happy Our scavenge for a goat to put on Pure Joy for the prank war. Spoiler alert: they couldn’t find a goat. Now, we are preparing to take our exam. We can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings!
