Bazzer looked at our Walmart equipment and gave us a long safety lecture. Lisa's ears clear slowly so we were last down. Distracted by some huge angelfishes, we got swept away from the group and headed to Spain. Fast and deep! When the wonderful Florida tropical fish turned into those weird creatures with lights dangling in front of their mouths, we figured we had better go up. We looked for the boat. How did Bazzer tell us to inflate the emergency marker? After tearing to shreds I got a bit of it visible. You know the earth really is round. The kid with really good eyes sitting in the tower spotted us and the boat voyaged over to rescue us.
After more lectures we got to do the second dive. Bazzer and the dive guide were not going to get out of our sight. They led us through a ridge thick with brightly colored tropical fish. Like swimming in a giant overcrowded fish bowl. Fantastic! Rays, turtles, weird little fish and a startling assembly of beautiful sea life made this a great dive. The fish density dropped off a bit and the strobe lights on Bazzer's fancy camera went erect as a swarm of sharks came to visit. Bazzer wasn't able to get any great photos because our Walmart fins were better at stirring up the muck than swimming so the visibility wasn't photo quality - but still an incredible experience.
We enjoyed an apres dive tropical beverage at the tiki dive bar to perfectly end a great day. Thanks to Bazzer's friendliness and experience.
