Another great day on the Texas Clipper. Seas less than 2 feet (glassy) mild currents and a blue sky….. but the water was a deeper blue, we call it Cobalt Blue. Once marked on the wreck via GPS, we could see it well enough for the easiest tie in yet by Tim. Tim conducted the initial dive briefing from the deck of Diver 1 while pointing to the Clipper some 70-80 feet below. We spent the day watching divers from the surface and could even read the “Nitrox” stickers on tanks. Several octopi are now residents in various holes…as the life continues to grow abundant. On the un-tie and final ascent, the diver watched a large school of 2-4 foot Ling cruise over the wreck.
