Dive Report: 2/24/08

we went out at 1pm with Amoray (brothers choice) nice boat, good staff.
the day was nice, the water was cold, and when we surfaced from the first dive, apparently some Portuguese man-o-wars decided to show up, very close to us. the captain thought we were gonna run in to one on the short swim in, but it blew by. when we got on the boat, you could see them everywhere. the next people to surface did so about 6 feet from one, and though we were joking about it when we yelled to them... who jokes about jelly fish? we were at elbow reef, city of washington. lots of life, none of the sharks or cudas. oh well.
Dive 2, elbow reef, mid reef.
Large beautiful ray made the dive worth it!! just moving gracefully on the bottom. 3 foot cuda as well, just looking at us before he swam off.

water was 74-75, my 1mm was not great for that, my brother dove in shorts and a rash guard, and said he was fine (must be sick in the head)
current on the second dive, great viz on both!

fun to look at from a boat, if you dont plan on being in the water with them.
they are kind of cool looking.
