I know they dived east on Jan. 23... seems like a few days earlier and maybe more recently in the year, too, but I haven't hit it right to go yet this year - except going around past Punta Sur park on the boats.
On Sunday and Tuesday I was getting a consistent 82, after having gotten 84 three weeks ago. I was happy to have taken my 3mm on Tuesday - with cloud and winds, it was chilly to me. But I wasn’t cold when I got home.
Air temperatures are down, too. Low 80s in the afternoons instead of mid 80s.

Jared, I am sorry for your loss. I hope that you and your family are healing and sharing good memories of your dad.
I also hope that you can find your way back underwater, finding some solace in the depths you and your father loved.

Netflix has an excellent show, Taco Chronicles, sharing lots of information and backstory on our favorite Mexican dishes...
The eel and nurse shark are hunting buddies. The eel scares prey out of the reef, and the shark gets it. The shark scares prey into the reef, and the eel gets it.
Comensal hunting is common. Groupers also hunt with green moray eels. Smaller sea bass, such as the coneys, hunt with smaller eels...
