EXTREME SEAL EXPERIENCE Day 3, Monday
We got to the SEAL house at 0800, ready to film the men have an early morning PT session, ending with a long run down the beach. After their run, the men prepped their zodiac boats and mounted their engines. While one team practiced with the zodiac boat engines, breaking through the waves and beaching the boat again with the motor safely risen, the other team was sent on a long swim training session learning how to maneuver through the sea wearing the gear, boots and all. After the grueling PT and training sessions, it was rest time for the men and for us film crew.
After a few hours’ break, the men readied their zodiac boats once again for a mission to storm the beach in front of a nearby restaurant, a well-deserved treat for the men. The students split into two groups- one rode the boats to the restaurant while the other half rode in the bus.
Tonight’s meal was a great break and reward for all of their hard work. Tomorrow morning is an 0600 sunrise PT/run, looking forward to seeing the dolphins with the sun rising in the background.
