    Is Santa Rosa wall like I described?

    Santa Rosa I think of for it's dramatic swim thrus (and sometimes dramatic currents)

    We dove Santa Rosa Wall this morning. Great viz and very little current. Beautiful dive.

    Haven't heard anything about a missing diver.

    A female diver has been missing since 10 am. She was a cruise ship passenger. Not sure which dive site.

    Yes, female passener from one of the cruise ships is what I heard from our DM while we were still on the water. She was on the first dive (I heard around 8:30-9:00 AM) and was on Santa Rosa wall. Got blown away or down by one of the bad currents we have been experiencing. As far as I know, not found. I saw the helicopter heading back from searching late yesterday afternoon.

    Edit: The PorEsto article is out:www.poresto.net/ver_nota.php…

    They do say 10:00 AM and suggest she was actually "lost" after surfacing rather than a current situation while diving.

    I think we were the first divers down on Santa Rosa wall yesterday (8:20 according to my computer) and we were down 52 minutes. The current was normal......VERY slow compared to most other dives this week.

    Things must have changed very quickly. I hope they find her.
