West Palm Beach- 6/30/08Dive season this year has been very hectic, not that I’m complaining. This season alone, I’ve assisted with multiple classes and have met about 100 different new divers. We have been doing our last two check out dives with Bill Walker’s Dive Charters in West Palm Beach, "The Wetter the Better". He runs a great service out of the North Palm Beach Marina, and his Divemasters on board are very informative and helpful.

For the last few weeks, turtle sightings have escalated. Usually we would only see one turtle a day, but yesterday I saw about 10 different loggerheads that afternoon.

They’re size and grace is amazing, and they’re such a pleasure to run into. I know its mating season, and I’m glad to be diving right there next to them. I’ve also seen green turtles as well, but running into a Loggerhead is a true treat.

I have yet to see a shark this summer... I keep looking. Maybe on my night dive coming up on July 4th I’ll be more fortunate.

More pictures will be coming up on my page once I get all of my photos uploaded and edited.
