El Paso, TX
Water Type: Salt
Entry Type: Shore
Algae was excessively thick and difficult to remove. Visibility was zero within 10 minutes. Water temperature was between 77-63F. Last week’s dive had been canceled. The times on the dive watch are incorrect due to being at the surface. The dive computer does not track correctly until below a sustained 3’ depth. Estimated time is closer to 90 minutes combined. First dive was in at 07:17AM, out at 08:04AM, Second dive in at 08:29AM, out at 0858AM. Tom took pictures from the gallery and surface, will send them via email. Pre-dive and post-dive briefing conducted by Cory. Gear rinsed down and inspected.
