Met the guys at the beach at 8:00 am. We geared up and were ready to get in, but I broke the buckle on the top tank strap on the Zuma. Ended up using a zip tie to fix it. We swam out to the Big Rock NNW of the swim buoy and descended.
Leo found a Purple Mouth Moray Eel peeking out from a hole on the Big Rock.
I photographed this Star Horseshoe Worm
and this Seaweed Blenny.
From the Big Rock, we headed 150 degrees to the Little Coral Knoll. There, Leo found a Spotted Moray Eel. Luis found a clam shell and opened it to feed the eel and coax the little fella out of the reef. Unfortunately the Triggerfish wanted the clam, too, so the eel lost out.
I got several shots of this Barred Hamlet and and some other reef fish. I also went to the surface to adjust my zip tied BCD and apparently stayed too long as the computer reset. So I made a second dive.
We stayed on and around the Little Knoll for a while then headed back to the beach. Along the way, I got this shot of a Bicolor Damselfish.
I also found another Star Horseshoe Worm on a rock and took a few more pictures.
Luis made a two hour dive. Leo and I were cold and just wanted to get out of the water.
