Visibility good, finally!

As I flew my recon drone to Little Bay from my balcony this morning, I had hoped that today we could at least see rocks and shapes from the air, so we could run our tours. we have had to cancel tours 4 weeks in a row for bad visibility. Mother Earth is very angry apparently.

However, today the news is better than expected and we do not have to be down. From the video I could see EVERYTHING in Little Bay, all the wrecks, all the rocks. The water is crystal clear for a change. This is good news, with 38 SNUBA on the menu.

Here’s a happy picture:
