Location: West End, Tortola

Today was an amazing day because it was the day that all the shipmates arrived at AQ. The first shipmates to arrive got to the dock at 1:00 pm including myself. At that time we met our boat and crew for the next three amazing weeks. The next few hours were spent unpacking and settling into our new homes. Right as the next group of shipmates arrived, we jumped into the beautiful warm water for our lovely swim test. After soaking in the bathwater-esque Caribbean Sea, we received our dive gear. As the night progressed, we received a few more shipmates while we made and ate an amazing tortellini dinner. The last few shipmates trickled in at 10:45 pm during a torrential downpour. This has been the start of an amazing trip.
