Discovering Carmen Island

Today, we did four dives at Carmen Island. There was a large sandy bottom with lots of macro life and one giant jaw fish. On the second dive we spent about 30 minutes on the sand watching small things move very slowly but that jaw fish was the show stopper. The structure of its whole was impressive with shells layered with sand and small stones in between. We descended slightly and found a lovely black coral sea and then we spent the last half-hour along the pinnacles. As dusk approached things got more lively. The shrimp, crab, and lobster were very defensive and ran from the light of my torch. The fish were lively and in the final moments a pair of angel fish decided to check us out. The ascent in the blue was smooth and the skiff brought us back to the ship in time to shower and watch last 15 minutes of the sun set. It was a lovely day and the crew made it all possible.
