The Diver I took 20 divers out to the Texas Clipper on a very calm day. You could watch divers on the Clipper from the deck of the Diver I. New and colorful corals are beginning to grow. More on that when the UTB science team defines what we are seeing.

Water on Little Sara was a cool 76 degrees with some fresh water mix from Mexico but it did no effect visibility. Seas were 2 to 4 feet with visibility around 60 feet. There was not an upwelling to speak of but there was a thermocline at 50 feet.
