Rig JA-424 - Freeport TX


Loading...
This is an Oil Platform of the coast of Freeport, Texas. It’s a great boat dive about 35 miles off the coast and an 2 hour ride. Great dive during the summer. Close to the surface are large Barracuda patrolling. Schools of thousands of Atlantic Spade Fish. There was a large Sea Turtle too. Warning: Be aware of the Trigger fish. They are like mosquitoes, like to bite a lot. The very bottom may be murky.
