Snorkeling in British Virgin Islands

Hello! This is C Watch! Today we mustered on the quarterdeck in the morning to discuss guidelines for snorkeling, as well as reef studies that we would contribute to. We separated into three groups: Group 1 counted parrot fish, which are indicative of coral health; Group 2 counted echinoderms, mollusks, worms and lobsters to research biodiversity; and Group 3 counted recruit versus adult corals.

Hello! This is C Watch/Caribbean Watch taking over the blog! Today marks the beginning of a new decade and the end of another day in paradise. During deck watch this afternoon, we cycled through our typical duties, which included boat checks, managing the helm and lookout.

Growing SEA Legs!

Pull in the gangplank and hoist the sails! Today we pulled away from the dock in St. Croix and plunged straight into our voyage to San Juan (with a lovely stop in the British Virgin Islands only days away). However, adjusting to life on the high seas came with its own unique challenges. Many struggled with seasickness, some struggled with coiling heavy ship line, and everyone struggled with staying cool in the bright Caribbean sun.
