    Wednesday Nov. 11, fourth day of port closures. Wind has died down quite a bit so hopeful for tomorrow. Like to thank the whole team at CenoteXperience for squeezing me in for two days of cenote diving. Sunday we dived Angelita and Carwash. Angelita is similar to The Pit if you've dived it. We started our descent in zero viz--I couldn't see my guide Carlos four feet away except his light. Viz didn't clear up until we hit about 85 feet and we could finally see the island mound in the middle of the hydrogen sulfide cloud. Visibility was around 30 feet but started to clear as more divers descended--maybe viz got up to 45 feet max. Large group or class of free divers clogging up the dock area so had to work our way around them to get out. Left Angelita cenote to Carwash to eat our lunch---the mosquitos at Angelita were brutal but hardly any at Carwash. My expectations of Carwash were pretty low but I was in for a big surprise. The tannic MICR0027.jpg MICR0026.jpg MICR0040.jpg MICR0059.jpg acid in the water had turned the water to a beautiful Bronco orange color and viz was seventy feet plus. Made for some good photo ops. The descent into the cavern zone turned dark fast and the viz was unlimited. Not a long line but nice with some up and down and some stalactites to view. The view back into the main pond of the cenote was eerie (nice shades of green.) Liked the dive at Carwash under these conditions but I was told it wasn't always this colorful. MICR0015 (2).jpg

    Had my reg in at Cozumel Scuba Repair and missed the 1:30 boat at Blue Angel. All good though. Went for a shore dive instead. Seemed very lively.
    Big swaths of the pen were down btw.
