I went scuba diving here on 5/22/2013. Average viz: 36-40ft/11-12m. Water temp: 81-85°F/27-29°C.
Both of these dives were unmarked locations. The first was called Perseverance Mound (Reef). We found lobsters and removed a couple invasive Lion Fish.

I went scuba diving here on 5/21/2013. Average viz: 41-50ft/12-15m. Water temp: 81-85°F/27-29°C.
This was an unmarked location South of the Navy Barges called Laura’s Paradise. It’s a corral reef and has all the amazing sights.

This was an unmarked location grossly S/E of the Miss Opportunity called Mast Reef Drift Dive. It is near the Francisco Reef which I dove earlier this trip.

I went scuba diving here on 5/17/2013. Average viz: 51-60ft/16-18m. Water temp: 81-85°F/27-29°C.
The first dive was at the unmarked location called the Upper Limestone Reef dive - located grossly South of the Navy Barges. We found many large lobsters, loads of various sea life, an amazing pair (male/female) of African Pompano which I captured in my video.

The second dive was also unmarked but titled Fishbutt Hole dive. This was the second half of an earlier dive I did here. We found the old large cannon that is berried here.

I went scuba diving here on 5/15/2013. Average viz: 41-50ft/12-15m. Water temp: 81-85°F/27-29°C.
This is the unmarked Fishbutt Hole dive - named after our Captain/DM Fishbutt (aka John). The vis was less than normal due to weather, but the sights were still outstanding.

This drift dive as at an unmarked location named Francisco’s Drift and located grossly to the S/E of the Miss Opportunity Wreck. The corral reef has an amazing amount of sea life which I recorded with my GoPro.

We found and removed one invasive Lion Fish during this dive.

I have been on a dozen dives with these guys and loved it. Duane and Fishbutt (aka John) alternate between Captain and Dive Master, while Laura heads up the Dive Shop.

If you’re looking for a personal dive boat, this is the one.
