Night Dive off Tower 2

I got stuck at the Causeway bridge, but got to the beach by 5:15 pm.  Darryn came at 5:30 pm and Luis was right behind him.  Darryn read the review questions and answers and we discussed how we signalled underwater at night.  We geared up and got in the water.  We swam out past the swim buoy to descend. Luis had a bad regulator hose, but it wasn't as bad as it looked, apparently.  We swam East slowly and turned South in 24 ft of water and swam over some reef to the beginning of the Jacks.  We then headed East along the Jacks and turned the dive at 1500 psi.  Darryn saw a turtle.  I found a small spotted moray eel.  Not terribly cold, but I was chilled for most of the dive.

Water Temperature was 75 degrees; Dive time was 100 minutes; consumption rate at an average depth of 17 feet was 25.87 psi/minute; SAC rate was 17.07 psi/minute; RMV was 0.44 ft3/minute.
