Advanced snorklers and divers made the trek out to Little Sara today. Fresh water from the Rio Grande brought in plankton that clouded up the top layer of the water column limiting viz to around 30 feet. Once divers dropped down below the halocline viz opened up to around 80 feet and waters were blue down to about 80 feet. Lots of barracuda were seen and divers enjoyed swimming with the large schools of lookdowns, octopus, damsels, arrow crab and more.
