Learning the Island Life

Today was a great introduction to our new island life! We started the morning by getting a tour from our Dive Instructor and Island Guru. The volunteers finished their “homework” for their dive program. The advanced divers got to go on a Naturalist dive, and learn about the island diversity. And the teachers got to attend…

Gettin’ sweaty then gettin’ wet!

Friday 30th May 2014   Today was a busy day. The plan was to work all morning then dive all afternoon. That’s exactly what we did but somehow it seemed even more.

Everything is going well on the Island :)
