Blue water retuned to the Clipper this weekend. We had been experiencing unpredictable conditions since Hurricane Dolly came through back at the end of July. However, good weather and calm seas ruled the day for a group of divers from San Antonio. They were treated to blue water, schooling butterfly fish, large barracuda, octopi, and a even a glimpse of a couple of black tip shark that were hanging around a nearby shrimp boat culling. All in all, it is great to be back in the water and even better to have conditions returning to normal for this time of year. With SPI Dive Week just around the corner, conditions should be great for all those planning to attend.
The conditions are improving by the day. We have had clear blue water up to the beach in some areas and the local spear fishermen have been having a great time. Diver 1 went to Little Sara on Friday, 29th of Aug to find blue water and a Shallow thermocline at 30 feet. Vis was great above 50 feet. Huge schools of bait fish were hiding inside the rig from nearby dolphins. Schools of Lookdowns continue to be locals there as well as Snapper and others. Octopi were in the corners, numerous Sgt Majors still about and one Bristel Worm was seen lurking for a meal. Seas were calm. Good day of diving!
