Good morning Divers!!!|
Visibility: 15-20 feet
Conditions: Salt water, shore dive, high tide, medium waves, surge.
Dive Buddies: The Italians. Total 20.
The conditions were improving, the tide is high, ocean calm. So I pressured Rich for going to Cleo street and dive the wreck. At 7:45 we left the mall and
headed for Cleo street.
We checked out the ocean and it looked good. We suited up and headed out. It's a long swim out. We swam past many patches of kelp.
We reached the drop down point and descended. Rich had sinus troubles and it took him longer to get down. The group started without Rich and I followed
them. Kristi had troubles and ascended. Dave followed her up. I continued on, but the group started to turn left and I went straight ahead. I saw something to
my right and sure enough it was the wreck. There were 5 of us exploring the wreck.
After 18 minutes, the Italians and I headed back in. We swam along the reefs and in one, I saw a lobster. I stuck my camera in his hole and videoed him.
We continued along and in 5 feet of water we ascended next to Rich and his group. We got out of the water and started to compared notes. Rich missed the
reef because he didn't drop down properly be because of his sinuses. Dale's group missed the wreck, but he swung back around and then hit it. We packed up
and headed to Husky Boy's for food and conversation.
Diving!! DO IT!! Safely...
