South Florida Diving: Day 2

August 3, 2009

For diving on Monday, our first dive was on the wreck of the Caster.  It was the first time that I’d ever seen Goliath Grouper (Jewfish).  Penny counted at least 13 of the big guys on the wreck.  There was also good macro life on the wreck itself.  I think in the last couple of years I’ve really learned to appreciate the macro life better…. so much so that I literally stumble on the big stuff.

At one point on the 2nd dive, a drift across reef, I drifted across a big green moray and was face to face with him.  Then there was a large spotted eel that had a lot of green fungus in it’s mouth.  Didn’t look real healthy.

We met a few nice people on the boat today.  It was a pleasure chatting and diving with them.

The surface conditions were pretty nice today, as were the dives.  Looking forward to more bottom time this week!
