Underwater Pictures

I took a lot of underwater pictures, but many of them did not look too good because of the silt and debris floating in the water.

Most of the depths for these dives were relatively shallow, and the visibility would depend on where the Gulf Stream was at. All of the dive sites were approximately one hour off shore, and each trip would last around six hours.

We did dive two wrecks - Joe's Tug (basically a debris field) and the Cayman Salvager. The Cayman, at one time in its' career, laid underwater cable. The ship was sunk in 1985 to make an artificial reef. The Cayman Salvager is 187ft long and has a 37ft beam. I was able to get to a depth of 100ft when I dove to the sand floor where the wrecks is sitting.

Next time when I travel to the Keys, I will work my way up the keys to Looe Key and Key Largo, which has much better diving.
