No Off Season for Fish

This morning Miguel’s Diving staff took a much need break from above ground activities that keep us busy during off season. Even though we left the dock prior to 7 a.m. before the winds start, the swells in the river mouth were 1.5 meters and one wave entered the boat, making rinsing the boat easy since the water was already there! The goal was to clean up some crown-of-thorns at a nearby reef that we had noticed late in the diving season. During the thirty minute dive, staff only found 10, which were removed and buried on land. Despite the surface conditions, the reef was lovely. A school of yellowtail barracudas flashed in the morning light as they attacked smaller fish. A large Blue-spotted puffer with a remora attached watched from a crevasse. A few days earlier near the local marine park, a whale shark ploughed back and forth across of surface chasing minnows while mobula rays jumped in the bay.
