My name is Alex Bailey. Both of my parents are divers and they both work at the New England Aquarium. (You can read some of my father's past blogs here.) I have been hearing about their diving adventures since I can remember, and I have always wanted to go on an Aquarium collecting trip to the Bahamas. When I heard about the SEA TURTLE program, I knew that I wanted to apply.

I am already scuba certified and have been diving in open water a few times. But, I like reviewing the skills I have learned and even more so with the SEA TURTLE team.
I really look forward to seeing everyone and hanging out together. My favorite part of the pool sessions is definitely when we are down on the bottom of the deep end just having fun and learning the all the scuba skills with our gear on.

And, lunch, don't forget about lunch, that part is good, too!
