Comments: Much better weather in
the last few days, with the wind calming down, and the sea is flat. making a very enjoyable trip for our returning diver, Kelly O from Santa Cruz. Visibility was still quite murky post full-moon, thus 5-10m were the norm for the wreck dives. At the safety stop, we hung out with a school of neon fusiliers, getting cleaned by a couple of Cleaner wrasse, Click here to see the short video clip. Condition improved tremendously at Lucy's Reef, blue water and good sunlight for more opportunities to swim lazily with a school of yellow-tailed barracudas. More photos of the 2 days diving are posted at Picassa, click the link below:
