Diving in South Florida: Day 3

August 4, 2009

It was just the two of us on the boat today, so we did a “special” dive for out first one.  We went to a spot that didn’t have continuous coral reef, but rather required zig-zagging back and forth, looking at the undercuts of various coral heads.  What we were rewarded with were a few 6-7 ft nurse sharks, as well as a few large Green Moray eels, and some cool Drum Fish.

On the second dive we focused more on Macro-life.  I really like the small stuff.  Great to see how the various communities interact with one another!  During this dive, the temperature went from like 87F to 79F as a cold current rolled in.  That sure made things tighten up!  Kinda felt like I was in a Seinfeld episode.
