Divers from Houston with Just for Divers dived the Clipper today. Seas were moderate at 3 to 5 feet. The water was a deep blue and visibility was in the 20 to 40 foot range horizontally with water temperatures from 78 at the surface to 75 at depth. Divers reported seeing schools of juvenile amberjack, snapper and Atlantic spadefish as well as a giant grouper seen swimming inside the wreck for cover. The clipper has also become home to numerous bristle worms, fire coral, damsel fish, and blennies.
