I went scuba diving here on 6/9/2016. Average viz: 51-60ft/16-18m. Water temp: 81-85°F/27-29°C.
Reef was just like many of the others in the area, but our DM (Canicio) knows the captain of the submarine and had arranged for us to dive along side for our(divers) and the submarine riders’ enjoyment. Canicio had promised we would see the "Great White Whale" and we almost had the chance to ride the whale, but our timing was just slightly off. Great GoPro footage none the less. We dove with Aruba Mermaid Divers.
