Time flies when you’re having fun! Unfortunately so far for the shipmates of Mambo No. Five it feels like our shipmates arrived yesterday, but they’re already packing their bags to fly home. Its been an incredible couple of weeks of endless entertainment, and it seems many goals were accomplished as well. Whether it be Chloe getting up on the wakeboard, Tyler mastering the backflip, or Michael L. reaching his 50th dive, we are so proud of all that we’ve seen achieved. Julia and Adrian were even able to stay on their feet without falling over for a consecutive 24 hours! Over very own Derby girl, Amber, proved her amazing research skills throughout the Dolphin program, Clovis successfully won the Diveside sailing race and ripped the trophy away from the 2 time winner Boss Lady, Sam and James were almost joined at the hip for the entire trip and did some great research on Christmas Tree Worms. Mike K. could be seen diving around with his fancy camera taking pictures and videos of all the amazing creatures in the water (including the rest of Mambo’s shipmates!). We have done so many amazing things throughout the trip. We have dove a lot-wrecks, swim-throughs, and reefs. We’ve wakeboarded, hiked, visited towns and swam at the Baths. All in all, it has been a great 17 days of friendships, experiences, and memories that will last a lifetime. We’ve become a Mambo family, and having to say goodbye will be hard.
