The crews woke up early to quickly get off the ball and head over to the Indians for an epic snorkel. The winds were a little strong by the Indians, but it was nothing Alessandro and Rachel couldn’t do without a little help from their crews. Andrew, Lisa, and Becca snapped tons of photos of the great coral heads and new fish and Sloane spotted a huge Caribbean lobster. After the snorkel was over the crews hopped back on board for another sail to Little Harbor, Peter Island. Ale, Olivia, Lilian, Matt and Rachel all lead the crews through tacking and sailing around with plenty of time to kill. Captain Kyle taught Berlin the proper “Jersey Shore way” to set the anchor and the crews had their first try once at the harbor.
All the divers went off for their first dive as certified divers and Lilian, Brandon, Rossa, Sloane, Sydney, Caroline and Sebastian all tried their hand at turtle tagging. Though unsuccessful, everyone followed a couple turtles around and have confidence that we will get one next time. After everyone was tired out from chasing turtles, we relocated to Great Harbor, Peter Island to meet up with our diving friends and Caroline and Megan were thrilled to be reunited again. Sydney and Lilian and Andrew and Vica made a delicious dinner of BBQ chicken, rice and salad for the crews. Geneve came over to Berlin for a seminar about sea turtles, the types and differences, life cycle and threats, so that everyone will be more knowledgeable for the next encounter. After a quick boat meeting the Foxies went to sleep under the stars once more, excited to start their community service the next morning.
