The Euro model say's PTC7 fizzles at Cuba, but it's still too early.
I dove Jupiter today and talked to the boat on the Wrek Trek. They had over a dozen hanging at 40ft deep cause it was nippy on the sand. Since they couldn't hide inside the wrek, it gave them great photo shots since the GG's wanted to stay together. We've got boats going every day next week and we'll be intouch with them to hear where they move around to. It can be a bit of 'hide & seek' to find the larger concentrations. Yesterday there were 7 inside a big cut-out curve in the ledge. We'll see.
PS. @ROXANNE set me up with a surprise I'm bringing on the 22nd (can't tell ya what yet)
Thank you for the leads on open spots @JimBlay.
I actually have very little trouble finding spaces on charters heading out for Goliath dives, and usually avoid weekend diving during peak seasons. I’m a self employed commercial photographer and prefer to distance myself from crowds whenever possible. The only reason that I considered joining any of the dives specified in this thread was to have the chance to meet some of the people whose posts I have enjoyed or learned from here on the forums.
For the past decade or so I’ve been a customer of Kevin’s at Underwater Explorers. Because of my preference for smaller capacity boats, his was my ideal operation for diving the Castor, as it was the only commercial 6 pack that granted reliable access to the site. Kevin always give me good drops whenever hot drops were deemed prudent, and he always brought me back safe and happy, but as some here may not yet be aware; Underwater Explorers is no longer in operation.
Thanks to some recommendations on this thread, I contacted Adam at Starfish Scuba and found him to be extremely courteous, punctual, and understanding of my desires. I’m booked with Starfish this coming Thursday morning for what I hope will be the first in a long series of visits to the Castor aboard his boat.
