A dive to the rig Little Sara. Visibility was 80 feet horizontal down to around 60 feet. Below 60 feet the upwelling knocked visibility down to 10 feet and water was considerably colder than the surface temp of 84 degrees. Divers were treated to two spectacular dives featuring schools of lookdowns, Atlantic spadefish, grouper, snapper and the usual patrolling barracuda. The resident octopus made an appearance for some of the divers. Also two butterfly fish were seen chasing each other around the risers at 30 feet. Tomorrow’s dive is to the Clipper!
