Dive Week 2014 wrapped up strong with divers from Sea Sports of Houston, and others from all over Texas and as far away as London. The water temperature at depth remained at 84 degrees but due to the recent storms and a flotilla of shrimp boats dragging the gulf in and around the area the visibility hovered in the 20 – 30 foot range. The divers spent time hunting Lion Fish on the Clipper and during the last 3 days of Dive Week were able to dispatch about a dozen, unfortunately there are still plenty down there. We would like to thank everybody who participated in this important event and a special thanks to those of you who donated so generously to the cause. Thanks to Stephen Whitley and Paul Schmieder for the photos below.
Dive Week has gotten of to a late start due to weather and off shore conditions but we made it out to the Clipper today with several divers that have been here all week to participate in Dive Week; the seas were a bit rough and visibility was diminished due to the recent weather but this group was not to be denied. Water temperature was 83 degrees at 110 feet, and a few Lion Fish were sighted in and around the 100 foot range, we will have to go back tomorrow and relieve the Clipper of a few more.
