Today was the most exciting day so far but was also was a super tight schedule. Everybody was rushed in the morning because we didn't want to be late for the swimming with whale fish thing...well you get what I mean. I think my mom was acting like she was super mom trying to stop a evil nemesis.

When we were finally ready the people that we were supposed to go with changed us to a diffrent people who did the same thing;  because their boat broke down. After we got checked in we went on to a boat that had only diver's except us. The boat ride took about an hour and a half excluding instructions which took five minutes. When we first got in the water I felt a little afraid because I new I was in three thousand feet deep water and had no lifevest on me; but the women in front of me had one just in case.

We didn't see fish for a long time intil we saw a huge school of huge horse-eye jacks (about 200) that were about one to two feet big and not much later we saw a whale shark! It wasn't a grown-up but it was very, very big. It was twenty-five feet tall!!! After we saw it we got on the boat and went to a amazing snorkle spot and we saw a sea turtle! It was three feet tall! It came like three inches from me.  It was a loggerhead turtle and was as curious about me as I was about him!  I dove down into the water to swim with it for a couple of seconds.  That was AWESOME!!
