    I was at Cranford Park (Spring Bay area) on Sunday and there was around 15-foot vis. Enterprise Channel on Friday was around 20-foot vis.

    Hey! You're back! I'd go for sure, but my family is visiting on the weekend. Any plans for taking out the boat, by the way?

    You have a small window on Saturday between about 4:30 and 5:00 PM and Sunday 5:30 to 6:00 PM, The current slow down for about 30-45 minutes to approx .5 kn, the current will then pick up quickly to about 1.5 knots. The info is from my Current Atlas so if you go for an unwanted drift dive it not my fault.:wink:

    Cheers

    Henderson: Down to about 55', VERY low viz, so take a flashlight.


    I've heard of there being a wall at Henderson if you swim south? Anybody ever do that dive? How deep is the top of the wall? I've only dove Henderson a few times.
