Vis has been improving all week to about 80' as of
Thursday 9/15.
Temps have been a steady 84 Suunto degees, with an occasional 85!
Today my lovely bride turned 60 and we are enjoying every dive.

We have done dives from Red Beryl in the south to Candyland in the north.
Vis has been from 80' down to 50'.
Last night saw a big thunderstorm with heavy rains, so lots of standing water around.
I would expect a heavy mosquito crop next week.
Water temps have been from a low of 82 (that at an unusual thermocline) to a high of 85, all at depth.
No theft issues at all, nor have I heard of any.
This is our first time here in September, and we like it.
This is the least crowded we have ever seen it here in 11 trips.
One major problem was a shortage of Polar, rectified yesterday, and all is now well.

Forgot about the lionfish.
We see one on every dive and usually several.
I saw two on Bari Reef this morning that were about three inches long and almost translucent.
The breeding population is alive and well.

Habitat was empty Sep 9-16, they said thet were full the following week due to coral spawning. We did see a little action on the 14th and 15th. The new rooms appeared full, behind them, only us in one of the 1br older bungalows, no body in our section but employees. They ran 1 boat and had 4-10 divers on it.

Grunt and Mrs(Birthday)Grunt, did you see any spawning action?? Happy Birthday to all the sponges and coral and brittlestars and Grunts!!
