The Baths and Moorings

June 29th, 2016 by Seatrek Staff |

Day 7 / June 22 –  We got an early start today so that we could head to the Baths on Virgin Gorda. The Baths is an area of eroded granite boulders that make for hours and hours of fun. There are also a couple of nice beaches and a hiking trail. Students enjoyed their time at the Baths, and then we did some sailing on the way to the Moorings for some shore time and to reprovision. Then we learned about coral monitoring methodology in preparation for our trip to Jost Van Dyke to meet up with Susan Zaluski of the JVD Preservation Society and conduct our scientific dives by monitoring the coral at the East End of JVD. After some water activities – including dinghy driving lessons and turtle tagging – and dinner, we went on a night snorkel at Little Jost Van Dyke. It was absolutely amazing! Perfect conditions for viewing nocturnal creatures – complete with a nearly full moon. For many of our students, it was their first time ever doing a night snorkel or dive….and they all did fantastic. Can’t wait to do our first night dive! We ended the day with a traditional SeaTrek shower party followed by cookies and hot chocolate – so fun!!!
