Kent Sierra Trip Update Day 4 – Graham Benton, Program Director
Today began with oatmeal and fruit in the cockpit of our boats. We are moored at the beautiful Norman Pirate Bight, famous as a pirate hide out in the old days. First thing this morning the divers and our two lucky mates went diving at The Indians and Angel Fish Reef, where they encountered many sea creatures including a nurse shark, an eagle ray, and several turtles.
In the afternoon, the Open Water divers completed all their skills with a total of 4 dives. While they were diving, the advanced divers and non-divers hiked to the top of Norman Island. We heard a great story, hopefully embellished, from Emma and Zoe about how they flew from the helicopter pad to Jamaica last night but Mark deduced that this was impossible as they were asleep in their cabins all night. After our hike we played giant Jenga while waiting for the Open Water divers to complete their shore dive. Mark and Zoe line danced to house music, and much fun was had by all.
Dinner was pan seared Mahi Mahi with rice and broccoli, which was delicious! On board Geneve the fish was garnished with lemon slices and garlic butter sauce prepared by our chefs, Captain Kyle and Sarah C. Berline had the same menu, spicing it up with Adobo, olive oil and sea salt. Both meals were amazing and put even the finest dishes by five star restaurants to shame! A lesson on Lion fish followed dinner.
Tomorrow, Saturday, we are off to Village Cay for some tasty ice cream!
