Saturday 26th
We just got back from another dive. What a great way to start a day. There was another couple, the dive master (Mauricio) & the 2 of us. We started at 90 ft. then graduated up to hang the majority of the time at 45 ft. The reef over here is still in pretty good shape. The purple fans, brain corals & conchs are huge! We have also seen quite a few lion fish so Fernando is killing them off as best he can. We never seem to get enough of the underwater world. Today we were down for an hour & did not want to come back up. There is so much to look at. We saw a couple logger head turtles & 1 of them was about 30 inches around. We drifted about 2 miles. The current was actually stronger the deeper we were.
We decided to do the Cenote dive on Tuesday. As we understand it, we will leave by van & drive to the location. We then do a 1 tank dive, come up for lunch & then go back & do the second tank. We are both really looking forward to this. This will be our 1st fresh water dive. Mauricio was telling us this area has the largest underground rivers in the world. Cool! We will tell you all about it afterwards.
