News from Down Under
Some of the best news is that our beloved Whiskey Wreck is now slightly more uncovered, thanks to Tropical Storm Lee, with depths ranging from 13' t0 15' instead of 9'.
Perdido Pass Jetties weathered the storm a little worse with a large amount of topsoil (from the the flooding) has dropped viz to a less than favourable 1' to 5' on most days. We expect this to clear up over the next few weeks.
Here are some reports from The Dive Boat this past week.
USS Allen: No current, viz: 5 to 10 ft.
