The day supposed to be great with low waves but as we arrive Jerry S, just came out of the water and said the words “Horrible viz”. I must admit that I entertained the idea of skipping it all together but my buddy drove 2.5 hours to get to the site so we had to
Couldn’t get enough of diving yesterday so got few people together to get in the water again. My wetsuit was wet from yesterday, perfect opportunity to try my new drysuit. Glad that I didn’t gained more weight, so it fits good. The boots I always have issues with, I don’t know what to do with
We got the worst report from the divers coming out, “it is horrible out there, 1ft viz”. Damn, what do you do? Well, that’s not even a question, after packing everything and driving 1.5 hours to the site. And I really thought it would little better than the morning reports, which were around 5-7 ft.
Beginning of the day I didn’t know I was going to dive in the evening. My buddy, that I never met, said he is going to Fort Wetherill, anyway, and I didn’t have set plans for the evening. So why not hit the road? Even though through out the drive it was raining at the
All day the wind was hitting hard but my new favorite website windy.com said it should be ok in Fort Wetherill, it is well protected from 2 ft waves hitting from east. But still the viz may be anything from 1 inch to 20 ft, for FW you never know. So as I was driving,
Great night, army of divers, army of photographers. All entered the water and one came out with water in her camera 🙁 Fortunately that was me. Fortunately because there were so much more precious cameras out there 😀 It was a great dive with amazing visibility. Saw regulars as well as this tiny boxfish/trunkfish, so
Andrea and I had a great dive this day, despite the fact that the winds were relatively high, 10-12 mph, and hitting straight into the cove. I really did not expect more than 3ft viz. By the time I arrived Andrea already had done one tour under the water and gave me the great news.
This sunday I had a short break from Fort Wetherill and joined by buddies at Folly Point. Before this year we haven’t dove this place and Bert got some info from a diver about the site and the entry and we said “why not?” For this site you park at the cemetery and find your
Another night dive after amazing conditions we had last dive. We had quite a few people interested and wanted a piece of magic 🙂 To my surprise the dive was completely different. The visibility had reduced significantly, there were much fewer squid, I didn’t see any school of bait fish. Still we saw a few
I haven’t figured out the parameters defining the underrwater conditions in Fort Wetherill all this time. However, this Tuesday, no rain with mild winds from east, hightide slack, mercury, venus and earth lining up and moon on perpendicular axis, we had one of the best conditions. Beautiful skies, flat calm surface and amazing viz (for
