5.33.227N – 87.02.433W, anchor in 80Ft of water in Chatham Bay.

From here we are diving Dirty Rock. The dive in the morning was very nice, loads of hammerheads and this time they were coming in close, you just have to position yourself behind a rock just hiding and let the sharks get close to you, relax your breathing and they will be right in front of your camera.

The cleaning stations are busy with the hammers, the water was cool down there. The temperature is 80F down in 100Ft of water but close to the surface it comes up to 84f. Rain comes and goes, loads of sun and suddenly, wind blows, clouds come and the rain starts. No current, easy diving. Yesterday in the afternoon dive, we found a frog fish, bright orange we all went crazy with it, also we saw the coral was spawning. On the way to the dive site, we spotted many dolphins that came to play with the panga bow waves during the dive. Divers heard the dolphins but never saw them. Today, the horse eyed jacks are around and in big schools, looks like they are doing their mating ritual and getting ready to mate,
