Upon flight over Jamaica, taking in the beautiful view of the islands, our class gathered into two buses to begin our journey to Discovery Bay Marine Laboratory. We were shown our living quarters and shortly after given a tour of the facility. We took a walk through the laboratory we would be working in. Finally a tour of the dock where all snorkeling and diving events would begin was toured. In an eventful day, with everyone in absolute defeat of life, we were all looking forward to waking up before the sunrise to begin our journey.
