Today is the day for boarding the Rock Island Aggressor. Check out time of the hostel is 11.00 and boarding time is 16.00. In the mean time we are stuck with all our dive gear, so we move to the marina and try to find a place where we can leave our gear. Luckily we meet the Captain of our ship and his suggestion is to leave the gear in a shop he knows and our gear is save out there. The rest of the hours we spend at the marina. We have brought the car back to Hertz. So we scan the internet and write some mails and what apps to our family and friends. This is the last chance to go on the internet for the next week. So after 16.00 all focus is on the diving. The skiff is picking us up at 16.15 and brings us and gear to the Rock Island Aggressor. After a drink and the welcoming words of the captain and the dive instructor, we unpack our gear and find a place for it where it will stay for the coming days. BCD, fins, shoes and mask stay on the skiff. Your wet suit is on the big boat to slip in to it before diving. The evening I use to get my camera in working order. It is the first time for setting it up to go below. So I have to be precise, I do not want any leaks or other problems with my camera while diving. Breakfast will be served at 06.00 tomorrow morning so get to bed at reasonable time.Sleeping in the cabin is difficult because of the loud airco.

Coffee tastes good at 5.30 and the breakfast has it all eggs, bacon, jam, and fruits. Just a short time left before dive briefing. First dive is a check dive. So the dive masters will look at your dive skills and for the right set up for your gear. The boat is equipped for diving in a very nice fashion. The skip ( small boat to bring us to the dive sites) slides on a rail and is slowly putting us in to the water. Every body has his own place in the boat so after diving all the stuff can stay.

I write this so much later so I do not know everything as good as normal writing on my website. now it is 7 months later. So I show you the photos i made with my new camera and lenses I bought.

As you can see an other very nice place to dive. No No a great place to dive. Wow seen so many sharks and other fine stuff. And also the boat became very comfortable. The food was so nice and the taste was extra ordinary .
