Divers from Scuba Schools of Forth Worth and Houston Underwater Club came along for a Tons of Steel trip which includes two dives on the Clipper and one dive on an gas rig. The Mississippi River flooding to the North has brought in a ton of fresh water and algae blooms to the normally clear mid summer waters.  The muck has created some not so great viz for divers on the Clipper as of late.  Still after two wreck dives it was time to head to the Iron Reef, Seana’s Rig.  To the divers surprise the algae bloom has also brought in a school of whale sharks!!  The shallower depth at the rig meant better viz and a chance to swim with one of the ocean’s most majestic and mesmerizing creatures.
