Well it looks like we just had our first “Cold Front” passage. I know it may seem a little silly to get excited about a 3 degree shave from out normal 88 degrees but what difference the drop in humidity makes! With the passage of the front we can expect the usual shift in winds from the north and the building of an eastern wind surge. It looks like monday through wednesday will be wonderful for offshore snorkeling. The seas will be below 2 feet which is pretty decent for both visibility and comfort. Come thursday the wind surges will make their way here so you can expect the seas to get a lot more unsettled and the water visibility to drop. My advice? plan on a trip earlier in the week verses later.
Today’s picture of the week is actually a beautiful video that Trishi took on last thursday’s eco-excursion. This fly over sequence gives a good perspective of just how beautiful a healthy reef is. We are so lucky to have the eco-reserve. Please support sustainable eco-tourism in choosing excursions companies that are more concerned for true ecological discovery verses free beer and a cheap boat ride to an overused and dying reef. Enjoy your time on the water and always “Respect the Reef”.
Shameless Plug time! We have some availabilities for monday but wednesday through saturday are all booked up. Sunday has a a few seats left and looks to be a good day to be our on the water. Remember to book us early!
