Snorkel gear hanging out to dry.

The group enjoyed a boat ride out to one of the research sites: Pigeon Cay. Its a shallow Cay that one can swim or walk around. They had a brief geology lesson on its formation and enjoyed a snorkel.

*edited 28/12/14* We ended the evening with orientation, a brief lecture from Doc and a lab. We broke into pieces of calcerous algae and identified several organisms including flatworms, chitons, etc.
