Shallow little wreck dive, but a great dive, almost didn't get to go but got luck that one of the guests on our boat really wanted to go and we were totally game!!
Did this dive during the day...thanks to Mike, our head divemaster, he gave me a personally guided tour...easy to navigate, it's mostly open and not in deep waters...approximately 50 ft. Nice large barracuda hanging out to greet us inside and a colorful large parrot fish...guess they were shooting the breeze. Sadly, it went down in flames and two men perished...so... More
A few grouper have set up camp and are quite territorial here, saw them defending against others. Otherwise not much here. The reef just to the west, however, is quite fun, with a mature spotted drum hiding in a shallow cave, several large crustaceans, lost of colorful reef fish, and a few lionfish (culling occurs weekly).
Gay found an isolated coral head that had an absolute tizzy of baby fish activity. Not baby gobies and parrots that you see all the time, but---baby snappers and tangs and rock beauties and surgeons...
It was a fairly dull dive to be honest, the wreck was interesting enough for about a 5 minute browse (there was a green Moray eel in the centre of the wreck), the rest was fairly boring although some decent corals.
