Location: West End, Tortola

After staying up all night in anticipation of the coming three weeks, the sight of all the sparkling ActionQuest boats may be the most satisfying feeling. At the harbor, we met the director Mike who directed us to our boats. Once aboard we met our comical, enthusiastic and caring staff. We checked in and put our passports and emergency money in safekeeping and unpacked. We took a quick swim test in the crystal clear, warm water and our first fun-filled showers. Everyone got their scuba gear in order and ready for our first dives tomorrow. As the afternoon went on more shipmates arrived, and we hung out and got to know each other. We had a bonding first dinner and a team-building cleanup. The day was filled with lots of laughter and new friendly faces. We are ending the night with a little light rain and excitement to set sail tomorrow.
