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.

I haven’t figured out the parameters defining the underrwater conditions in Fort Wetherill all this time.

Beautiful skies, flat calm surface and amazing viz (for
Yet, another awesome dive at Fort Wetherill. It was rather spontaneous decision to dive, the winds were from north, even though it looked iffy with high winds during the day we just headed down. Once we entered the water the viz was horrible, 2-3 ft at best. Later on, out in the deeper parts it
I don’t even know how to write about this dive. I have been watching the weather, looking for that change of wind or calming down so that I can do the first night dive at Fort Wetherill. That’s one of my favorite sites, also one site I have hard time convincing people to dive with
So far the summer has been amazing. The water temperatures warmed up and it has been sunny and calm in the weekends. What more can you ask as a diver? This Saturday we did our GAFC (Great Annual Fish Count) dive at Loblolly Point. First dive was so good that I didn’t even question doing
The weather is going great this summer for diving. On this beautiful day we picked Cathedral Rocks. We are a little scaredy and lazy bunch that we don’t do Cathedral as often, we wait for the conditions to be perfect, as in flat calm seas and high tide. And finally those conditions were satisfied today.
