We left the dock in the darkness with divers from around Texas and Monterrey headed out to Little Adam, the 4am meeting time would prove well worth it.
The conditions were ideal on the surface, 86-degree calm cobalt blue seas and plenty of sunshine; below the surface it was even better. A huge school of Tarpon greeted the divers as they descended into the rig. Divers saw schools of Lookdowns, Chub, Spade Fish and Barracuda along with all the colorful tropicals that schooled around the coral encrusted vertical and horizontal risers. At depth the temperature was a wonderful 84-degrees.
Congratulations to the Yarte family, our newest Scuba Divers and also to Brian, Jason and Apo on their Nitrox Certifications.
