Roatan: Summer 2018

Day 5 - June 6 - Turtle Grass Snorkel and Fiesta Night

Today began with an early dive to Barry’s Reef (a wall dive) where the students worked on their fish ID skills.  We saw a lot of good specimens and healthy corals.  After a surface interval back at AKR, we headed off to our second dive of the day which was a drift dive on the north side of the island.  It was a good dive and everyone is doing very well on their air consumption, so we are getting the full dive time.

After lunch we headed for an afternoon snorkel at Bailey’s Key.  The group really enjoyed the hands on experience out in the turtle grass habitat.  We saw many new species including spaghetti worms, sea cucumbers, fire worms and a lot of juvenile fishes.

That evening was Fiesta Night out on the Key – BBQ dinner, native dancers, crab race, limbo competitions, and dance contests.  The crab race was won by none other than our very own Russell.  Berry students did very well in the limbo and dance competition, too.  Jack was co-King of the limbo and everyone won in the dance competition.
