Dive 4 of Diving, Dec 12

The day was supposed to be 2-3 feet, it was actually the calmest day so far. The morning was nearly glassy flat, built to a little bit of wind and chop by the end of the day. There was very little current, mostly a trickle north. Started mild south on the outside on the 3rd dive, switched to mild north on the inside reef. Visibility was mostly around 60 feet, water temperature was 78-79.

I did four dives with Loggerhead out of Boynton with Capt Jim. Dave was mate in the AM and Tony the mate in the PM. The first dive was one we don't often make, Horseshoe, north of Boynton. This is a fairly normal reef dive until you get to a very large, tall hook in the reef, the horseshoe. As usual, the bowl was filled with huge schools of grunt, really magnificent. We saw 2 nice Bull Sharks on this dive. The second dive was on the north part of Boynton Reef, at Lynn's, a second, shallower relief above the main ledge. We saw another Bull Shark, a beautiful Hawksbill, an octopus in its den, and all the usual reef fish. The last two dives were outside of Gulfstream with a crossover to the inside reef and at Briney Breezes/Jerry's No Name. I saw a couple of good sized Lemon Sharks, another Hawksbill, and all the usual suspects. A great day of diving :)
Seems like the bulls and Sandbars are getting less and less wary of divers. Used to be they would keep their distance. Only a matter of time before a diver gets clipped.
