Thanks for the on-island report! We will be there Sat.

That cold/dark upwelling... I've never heard of that before. Is it common? I'd think it might bring with it some interesting creatures (hopefully, other than jellies).
My first experience and I am here a lot in December/January. Our DM has 15,000+ dives on the island and wasn't sure of the name of the jelly fish. I am going to look online and see if I can find it. They did not have tentacles or sting. Visibility was around 35-45 feet the last 2 days. Water temps are ranging 78-80 depending on the day and location over the last 10 days. I switched to my 5mm wetsuit a few days ago and am quite comfortable.

My camera light crapped out on me 3 days ago. As you might recall, I had a similar issue in the Philippines half way through that trip. I am getting a bot frustrated. Sea Life is a great company and their customer service has been stellar and I have never paid for repairs or replacements, but this is getting old when I have thousands invested in a trip and my camera light fails. Going to have a long conversation with them when I get back home.

This is what the jellies looked like:- They might be called Salps?
