And SPI Dive Week keeps rolling on with calm seas and warm blue water. It turned out to be a smashing success for the fund raiser. As an aside, divers reported a whale shark in Little Sara on Saturday. The pictures tell a thousand words.

Diving with the Wounded Warriors has been a privilege. Calm Seas , blue warm water. The warriors were given an escort back to SPI by Homeland Security, USCG, and the Border Patrol. They had a cocktail party with the mayor. I’ll let the photos tell the rest of the story.

Divers from Houston and some professors from UTB went to the Texas Clipper today with very gentle seas and warm water. Water temperature was 83 degrees to 110 feet and visibility was around 80 feet. A great day to explore the ship. We found a new type of coral growing on the Clipper that has not been seen before. We are sending photo’s to the UTB science team for identification.
