Weekend Dive Report

G'day mates,
It's time for your weekend dive report.

Divers aboard the Down Under 1 were happy when the seas calmed down enough to head out Saturday morning.
Because of the huge storm front from earlier in the week viz wasn't at it best on the Allen Liberty ship.  None the less divers enjoyed an excellent wreck dive surrounded by Schools of Atlantic Spadefish on one of history's famous WWII military cargo ships.  Congratulations to Jessica Polk, Anthony Norman, JJ Blackmon, and Eric Waller as this dive completed their Advanced Open Water Diver Certification.

Standard Liberty Ship Design (Decks removed from diveable liberties)
We headed in to the Southwind Barge for the last dive of the day.  Instructor Jim Mahan and team encountered Blue Angels, a Grey Angel and even a queen, viz was about the same.
Water Temp was 74-69.

Sunday  Down Under Dive Shop was joined by our fellow Scubapro Platinum Dealer John Gaffne's Round Island Divers for a run out to the USS Oriskany.
Seas were still a bit on the gnarly side but Viz was around 100' and water temps the same as Saturday.
Instructor Lila Harris encountered a Loggerhead Sea turtle that followed her around the carrier.
Awesome!
