Sunday April 10th
…After a fantastic breakfast, Andre briefed the divers and away they went on their checkout dive. Good sitings - eagle ray, green moray eel, large lobsters, even a small seahorse was spotted during the dives. For the afternoon and night dive, the canyons and swim-thrus at Julie’s Jungle made for great creature sitings. Giant clinging crabs, sea urchins, basket stars, and brittle stars crawling along the barrel sponges and soft corals.
Monday April 11th
…A couple shark dives at Chain Wall, just the right way to start the day. Over to LC Wall for a Giant Logger Head Turtle encounter and then.…DOLPHIN ALERT! DOLPHIN ALERT! DOLPHIN ALERT! during the night dive everyone experienced a beautiful dolphin that has been interacting with divers for the past few weeks - amazing!!!
Tuesday April 12th
…The day started well with sunshine and clear skies. A deep dive into the Blue Hole, then off to Half Moon Caye for some island time! For the afternoon and night dives everyone enjoyed Half Moon Caye Wall. A couple sharks, friendly nassau groupers, thousands of garden eels, southern stingrays, goat fish, and big blue parrot fish were just a sample of the sitings.
Wednesday April 13th
…Yet another beautiful day of diving the shallow reef at Long Caye. Painted tunicates along the wall, bermuda chubs, sergeant majors, 4-eye butterfly fish, hawks bill turtles, and eagle rays seen throughout the day.
Thursday April 14th
…Really great day of exploring the caves and swim-thrus at Silver Caves and Tarpon Caves. Silver Caves had a big seahorse near the wall. Tarpon Caves had silver sides luring the divers in for a closer look. The sharks and eagle rays patrolling the wall, gave everyone something to stop and take notice of.
Friday April 15th
…An early morning dive on Zip Line, a hot breakfast, then a final dive at Amberhead ended a fantastic week of diving. Once we arrived port, a few guests went on a River Tour to see Manatees, Crocodiles, Monkeys, and Birds. The other guests relaxed until our cocktail party at 6:00PM and a little award presentation for the following divers:
Iron Divers - Andreas, George, Karen, Hendrik, Mark, Rob
SSI Enriched Air Diver - Mario

EAT, SLEEP, & DIVE!
