Divers from the Valley, Canada, and San Antonio ventured out to the Texas Clipper, however, currents from the Rio Grand river prevented them from getting on the ship so everyone opted to head north to the Dolphin rig. Visibility was 50 feet with 85 degree water and choppy seas. The 5 spear fisherman on board were very successful. Seas are predicted be to be rough this week so we look forward to next weekend.
Divers from the Valley and San Antonio went back to the Texas Clipper in 2 to 4 foot seas. Water temperature on the ship was 86 degrees with visibility around 80 feet all the way to the oceans floor. A large school on ling cod circled the ship much like sentinels on guard duty. Diver I crew spent some time cleaning up line and will start cleaning off the shrimp nets soon.
What a beautiful day on the water. Dead calm seas, no current, 86 degree blue water and lots of red snapper. The spear fisherman had an absolute ball.
Today we could see the floor of the ocean surrounding the Texas Clipper. Visibility was around 100 feet and got better as we went deeper. Pictures tell a thousand words thanks to Paul Schmeider.
Divers from Duggan Diving and South Texas made their way out to the Texas Clipper with very calm seas and blue water. Spear fishing was great so many of the divers booked for Sunday’s trip as well. Visibility was around 70 feet with bottom temperature at 85 degrees. Photo’s by Paul Schmeider
Clear water made it’s way back into the southern gulf with visibility around 50 feet on the Dolphin rig and Little Sara. Currents were .25 knots and water temp was around 82 degrees.
Divers went out to the Texas Clipper in 2 to 4 foot seas. Fresh water from the Trinity river was still flowing into the gulf with a moderate current. Visibility was around 30 feet and water temperature was 82 degrees to 70 feet and then went up to 88 degrees from 70 feet to the bottom.

Divers from Dive World went to the Texas Clipper with very calm seas. The first dive had 40 to 60 foot visibility on the wreck depending on the depth. On the second dive the water opened up to 70 or 80 feet all over the wreck. We will be diving the Texas Clipper all week. Call for reservations.
