The US Virgin Islands are absolutely majestic and the harbor was filled with more yachts than you could count. We started our morning by taking a tram ride to Paradise Point and soaked in the panoramic views of the island.
When we weren't underwater in the BOSS we were swimming around Turtle Island's bay and watching in awe at all the turtles feeding on the grass and trying to get as close as possible when they would come up for air. Everywhere we looked there was a turtle either coming up for air or feeding on the grass. The beach that our tour guide had taken us to is actually where all of these turtles come to mate once a year and is a very protected area and the turtles had actually laid their eggs about a month before so the beach was littered with eggs. Our captain sternly warned us that the only way we would ever end up on the beach is if we were dying and we better be dying! He was funny and really passionate about protecting the turtles so we all took him very seriously. Our excursion barely made it back in time to the boat and as soon as we were back on board the ship we set sail for Dominica.
