Under nearly ideal conditions, Troop 52 splashed down on the Texas Clipper today. Visibility was 80 – 100 feet and the Clipper could be seen from just 5 feet below the surface. As the M.V. Diver 1 approached the dive site, those onboard were witness to a pod of dolphin that stopped by to check out who was dropping in on their feeding station. The dolphin hung around and made a few passes by the divers in the water and then moved on. Divers were treated to juvenile jacks, large barracuda, arrow crabs, butterfly fish, snapper, damsels, banded shrimp and an octopus.
