I just came back from Diving Jupiter Florida with Jupitermermaid... Was another great trip, diving her back yard so to speak ! Was my 3rd or 4th trip diving that location and its rapidly becoming a favorite dive location for me, rivaling any Island dives Ive done ! Never fails seeing what I call big critters on every dive ! This time was predominately Loggerhead Turtles. Two other divers from our boat reported seeing two leatherback turtles. With it approaching nesting season, they were all over, also saw a couple Goliath groupers.. didnt see as many sharks as I had hoped, though I have seen quite a few there on other trips . Visibility was probably 50 to 60 ft this trips, though I have seen 80 to 100 vis on other trips there. I didnt do as many dives as Ive liked, to this trip, predominately because I hadnt suited up for 69 degree water temp and was shivering the second dive. Im definately going back again in April or May for more great dives.
