A little cloudy on Friday but another great day on the ocean! The air was a little cooler at about 74 degrees Fahrenheit around 10:00 AM and the water has cooled a bit to between 82 and 84 Fahrenheit. This is good as we are seeing bigger fish and the blue water is coming closer to shore giving greater visibility underwater. Because it was cloudier on Friday we saw a lot more eels than usual. Here are a couple.
We saw a nuidbranch in the shallows but my picture is a little overexposed. An eagle ray spotting part way through the dive was exciting too but a little too far for a picture. Towards the end of the dive we saw a school of huge rainbow runners too. I would guess they were 4 – 5 feet long each and we saw around 20 of them in the school. Here are a couple more pictures.
