5.32.661N – 87.04.111W anchor in 80Ft.

Today we are in Wafer bay, diving Dirty Rock and Punta Maria, both dives are good. Today, Dirty Rock has been the best, we have seen hammerhead sharks, Galapagos, marble ray a huge school of horse eyed jacks, there was this Marble ray sitting at the bottom missing a big chunk out of its face very close to the right eye. Some thought that the ray was dead but it was not. It was just resting and trying to recover from such a wild episode.

One of the group saw a pretty decent school of hammerheads toward the end of their dive, so far so good in this side of the island, today there is a light current running west to east.Yesterday on the third dive one of the groups saw an orange frog fish.

Today we have strong wind from the east 14kts, air temperature is 85, water today is 84F and down deep you find thermos down to 79F. Visibility today is 100Ft above 50Ft and 50FT below that depth, cloudy skies for the most part flat ocean inside the bay.
