The Aquarium's teen diving expedition Sea TURTLE is reporting live from the Bahamas. This post is from Dina.
Yesterday we arrived in the beautiful waters of Bimini. The crossing over from Miami wasn't bad at all, but I was pretty tired so I took a nap in my cabin. Jenna knocked on my door and screamed "we're here, we're here!" I rushed upstairs, took a one look at the crystal clear ocean around me and realized I definitely wasn't in Boston anymore.
It was finally the time we've been anticipating, our first certification dive. My ears have been bothering me since I got off the plane in Miami, so I had trouble equalizing. I could only decend a few feet before my ears started to really hurt. I felt really down on myself that I had to miss the first dive in Bimini, but I'd rather be safe and in good health than risk it. I still supported the rest of the Sea TURTLEs on their first certification dive.
Today was our second certification dive at the Three Sisters rocks. My ears we're still blocked, but not as much as yesterday so I decided to try and dive. It took me a while, but I finally got my ears to equalize. The dive was absolutely gorgeous, we saw tons of beautiful fish and we even got to see a barracuda.
I'm having the time of my life here in Bimini with the Sea TURTLEs, the weather is amazing and I couldn't ask for anything better. I'm so grateful for having the opportunity to be here and I can't wait for the upcoming days.
