I will try to keep it somewhat organized, but no promises.
Since I already posted some photos from the first day of diving, I will post the rest here.
Then I will add separate posts for other, various aspects of the trip and other dives.
So, here we go...
These photos are various shots of coral, sponges and plant life from the dives near Buck Island, St. Thomas. The fish from the earlier post are all from these dives.
The first dive was on Rye Reef. max depth was 58 feet, bottomtime was 38 minutes.
sort of place that was home base for the week.
This is the view from the boat as we headed to Buck Island.
but I was able to get a shot of the creepy little thing.
Next up, pictures of the shipwreck near Buck Island, the Senora Cartanza or Senior Cartanser. Different dive shops use different versions of the name, English or Spanish.
The ship has an interesting history. If you care to find out more, just click on the link above.
This dive was a max depth of 45 feet and bottomtime of 40 minutes.
The shallow depth makes it a good beginner dive. Most times shipwrecks are in deeper water.
This is actually one of the dives I did on Discover Scuba while on my cruise all those years ago.
But this time we got to get a little closer, swim into parts of it and there was an easy swim-through. During Discover, we just swam around the part of it that was in the shallowest water.
