Location: West End, Tortola

We have come to the end of a great journey around the British Virgin Islands. We have sailed over 300 nautical miles, and have conducted over 300 dives over the last 21 days.

Our shipmates have excelled at both sailing and diving, developing new skills and certifications such as Night Diver, Wreck Diver, Boat Diver and PADI Advanced Open Water for our Neptunes.

Meanwhile, the Dolphins have learned about Digital Underwater Photography, Night Diving, and even completed a series of research dives and have conducted their own research projects. They have also been turtle tagging and conducted a series of marine dissections. However, most importantly, while all these awesome activities were going on, the crew of Second Wind has joined together as a team and a family.

Through our strange dance moves and eccentric noise-making, we have grown closer as a boat, but also as a fun, dysfunctional family. Every dinner, dive, and crazy sail have brought us closer and closer. Every single person onboard has grown exponentially, as students, but also as people too.
