Snorkeling/free-diving on this reef since for the past few days (good to be back at this great spot). Visibility was good on 6/24, 6/25. Today, 6/26, visibility was good in the morning but was around 5 feet around 5pm... too much wind and current!
Photos from my snorkeling trips so far (each photo has the exact location thanks to camera GPS): inaturalist.org/observations?d1=2019-06-24&order...=grid&user_id=joemdo
Highlights include squirrelfish, sand diver, grey triggerfish, tarpon and three green sea turtles. Lots to see, just like last year :-)

Here’s a link to my observations from yesterday, June 21st, 2018. I was in the water for about 40 minutes.

You can usually spot the species you mentioned when diving Lauderdal By Te Sea. Your better than me as I don’t know most of the names of the fish. I posted alot of pics on my fb page.

Looking to do some diving this week, most likely March 17, 18 or 19. If anybody is interested, let me know.

Not a bad dive, I dove it last year testing out my new gear. I look forward to doing it this year and finding more marine life.
