Sundancer II/Aggressor IV Dec 5-12, 2015
Tuesday December 8
Saw my first scrawled filefish ( see picture above) of the trip and an ocean triggerfish being cleaned. Near the end of the dive, we saw a southern stingray in the sand.
Tarpon Caves was an excellent dive site. I really enjoyed the coral and the big “stuff.” The visibility over the wall was great but under the boat (above the sandy area) was pretty bad.
Today for lunch we had Mexican Buffet-chinmole soup and make your own burritos. Very yummy.
The afternoon dives were at a site called East Cut. With a hardpan wall and coral heads in a sandy area. When we jumped off the boat I thought-we’re never gonna find the boat after the dive it was that murky. But we had a nice dive with a couple of shark sightings, a hawksbill turtle, and eleven lionfish. We also saw three smooth trunkfish chasing and displaying. One finally gave up and swam away.
Dinner was split pea soup, spinach salad, snapper with cilantro sauce, and a nice Chardonnay. Dessert was Chocolate Decadence-it was delicious.
We weren’t going on the night dive and had planned to star gaze, come to find out no one could night dive as there were seas wasps in the water again. So most folks hung out on the top sun deck and watched for shooting stars.
Next Up The Great Blue Hole (which we don't dive into but swim around) and Half Moon Caye Wall
