Saturday December 9

Our Divers arrived aboard, set up their gear and had an excellent dinner. We stayed the night in Nassau and headed out the next day.

 

Sunday December 10

The chilly winter weather winds subsided and we started our dive week on Lobster No Lobster for the afternoon and night dive. The shallow scattered Coral heads harbour all manner of Rays, Eels and colourful reef fish. Several Octopus were on the prowl that night.

 

Monday December 11

Up Close Mon there was a rather large ruff tailed Ray causing the sand flats just under the boat. The reef itself held many delights like Hermit Crabs, Parrot Fish and Schooling grunts. Cruising over to Barracuda reef we came upon a large gathering of Nurse Sharks, at least a dozen, lay in a group in the sandy area between the Coral heads.

 

Tuesday December 12

The Walls were open today! Jew Fish and Pillar Wall are similar with that Deep Blue drop off, swim trough canyons and towering Coral heads. On to the Austin Smith and the Sharks! This is our Stark feeding dive. Several friendly Nassau Groupers are there to interact with.

 

Wednesday December 13

Back on the Walls! Whales tail was so interesting we did two dives there. Crab Wall provided more sweeping drop off action and swim throughs. Closer intro we checked out Crab Reef for the afternoon and night dive. Several Turtles were curious enough to visit.

 

Thursday December 14

We began our diving day on the fabulous Black Tip Wall. With the sim troughs and drop off on the first dive and exploring the upper reefs for the second dive. There was an inquisitive group of Atlantic Spade fish, Snappers and Chromies darting about. After another fabulous Lunch we dropped into the Washing Machine for a fun ride over the sandy meadows spotting lots of Yellow Rays and Bar Jacks. For the Afternoon we checked out the Plane Wreck then crossed the banks to Anchor off the Blue Hole.

 

Friday December 15

The spectacular Blue Hole supplied several reef sharks and rays. An amazing feeling swimming over the edge and dropping into the depths of this hole. The delightful Periwinkle reef was so clear today that you could see the resident Nurse Stark from the other side of the reef! Schooling Sargent Majors, Angel Fish and snappers were all about this shallow and colourful site. Then on to Nassau and the wind up Cocktail Party.

 

Best Fishes,
