Dove here on 07/28/17. This was our second dive of the day. Our first dive was on the Pete Tide II. Visibility was poor at all sites compared to normal and got progressively worse as we got closer to shore.

The vis at the Ocean Wind was about 15 feet. Again, due to all of the recent rain in area.

We did get up close with the resident Goliath Grouper. But, we could have easily missed him/her due to the visibility. Will go back here for some better photo opportunities when the visibility is at it’s normal level.

I went scuba diving here on 7/23/2017. Average viz: 51-60ft/16-18m. Water temp: 76-80°F/24-27°C.
New site but already covered in fish and a goliath grouper hangs out at the bow. Tons of opportunity for wide angle and macro photography.

Nice easy dive with some fun swim-thrus. Only been down 5 months at the dive we did it. Some good growth already. Lots of bait fish and a lot of jelllies on that day.

Lot’s of bait fish, and some large fish on the prowl. Little growth yet, but lot’s of starfish including large sized ones. A nice, relaxing dive. Can be penetrated with little risk. Little current and temp was about 70-75 when we visited (6/3/15)
