WOW !! Texas Clipper!! Whale Shark!! Calm seas and blue clear water on the Texas Clipper today. Some upwelling but visibility was still at 100 feet. Once in the water, you could clearly see the wreck. Today was a group from Tom’s Dive and Swim in Austin and several divers from various locations as far as Colorado and Massachusetts, all getting some great exploration on the wreck and enjoying the vast marine life. While lunch was served, the Diver 1 moved over to Seana’s Rig. Tim went in to tie in and surfaced saying something about Whale Shark! We got the divers in quick so all could enjoy the 25 foot Whale Shark circling the oil rig. Same one spotted there two weeks ago. Also present were several Ling. Good day of diving the Devil’s Elbow area off South Padre Island.
