MikeJacobs once bubbled... and of course those two little silvery bait-fishes that remained on Marvel's cute little butt for most of the dive.
What WILL they think?
Seriously, awesome dive this AM! Jenn & Mike didn't see it because the visability was so poor but, when I dropped down, there was a stingray scooting along right in front of me. I knew it would be a good dive from that point on & I was right!
You guys that aren't making it to these dives just don't know what you are missing! Come on out & join us sometime!
it was awesome. The remora was there once before, I wish I had my camera, he (she?) really wanted to be attached to something. I was gonna hold still and see what happens, but it went straight for the inside of my thigh instead of my fins and well, I just didn't want a sucker bite looking reminder of the dive there!
Tons of juvenilles- queen angelfish, french angels, highhats, grunts, tangs...
Those were some big blue tangs eh? Wow. How about the grouper and soapfish(?). Lots of different critters.
I would love to do a night dive there.
On a different note. I went to drop my tank off at the shop and have it hydro'd. They said those are no longer being hydro'd because of the make. I think the initals on it were MK or something like that. Goodbye ole tank, you were good. However, the shop is selling me a used one and am able to use my valvestem on the "new one."
Just for easy numbers:
100 dives @$7/per dive to rent a tank = $700
100 dives owning my own tank:
$50 for the tank (used)
$45 for 3 years of VIP's
$50 for 2 Hydro's with the VIP (hey I got the tank used and it needed Hydro'd)
$300 for 100 tank fills
Total cost of owning a tank for 5 years $445
Then the biggest reason, I can have my tank filled and ready at a moments notice to catch a dive!
