Monday Mind Game

A galleon is ignited on the high seas.
All of the sailors, with the exception of the Captain, leave aboard the life boats.
The Captain then dives and swims underwater for 90 meters, then hears an explosion.
He surfaces and immediately hears a second explosion.
The Captain rejoins a life boat and is pulled aboard by the sailors.
The Captain mentions that he heard two explosions.

The sailors state that they only heard one explosion.

Both the Captain and sailors are telling the truth.

How is this possible?

Give up?

Sound travels five times faster underwater, so the Captain heard the explosion underwater first, then heard the same explosion after surfacing.
