Location: Savanna Bay, Virgin Gorda

Today was an awesome day! The sun was out, and there were little to no clouds all day. In the morning we talked about how to use a compass underwater. Then we went on shore to test our knowledge about what we learned. It was very funny to watch everyone walking around the beach with towels over their heads and a compass in hand practicing their new navigation skills. After lunch, we went over to a dive site located close to the beach to put our navigation skills to the test. While we went diving, other students went ashore for a hike to the other side of the island, and the rescue divers were in the water learning how to help someone who is hurt or in distress. Once we were all done with our different activities, we all reunited back on the boat for showers and dinner. As we were eating the sun was setting in between two islands, and the sun was reflecting off the water. I took a picture, but it doesn’t show how beautiful and peaceful this place is. I can’t wait for another great day tomorrow and another awesome dive with these fish!
