Once the angry sea gods stopped throwing rain and lightning at us the Gulf offered up some more great diving.
With all the snapper fishermen out and about our dive sites have been limited. We've enjoyed some pretty killer viz on Navy Tug (80'+), Rome (60'-70'), Pete's 301 (named after our master diver Pete's 301st dive (40'-50'), Nu' Barge (60'), and 151' Tug (60'-80') We are starting to see lots of loggerhead sea turtles on the surface and not hardly does a day go by where dolphins haven't chased the Down Under out to sea.
Our Divemasters are doing what they can to keep the lionfish at bay. Killing up to ten a day.
