Little Adam

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.

Intrepid divers bucked superstitions today by coming out and diving the Texas Clipper.  Seas picked up a little bit and were in the 2 – 4 ft range. Visibility is still very nice at 80 feet, but the thermocline has come up to 70 feet where temperatures drop from 86 F down to 77 F. Thanks to Skip and Dan for coming down and diving 4 straight days with us on the Clipper. Also, Congratulations to Gib Boza, who added NAUI Instructor to his list of accomplishments yesterday.
