As a newly certified "rookie dweeb" diver, Vaersen Bay was my 10th dive without an instructor. To add more "excitement" to the mix, It was my wife's 1st non instructor dive and my first ever, "follow me because I have more experience dive" . Hence, not a lot of experience here to back up any scores but the dive was great. Entry was easy, we swam out about 200 yards to the buoy and descended to about 20-25 feet just short of the wall. We descended to 60 feet and navigated back and forth using a huge purple barrel sponge. Vis was around 75 feet. The area had been torn up by bad weather so when we went, July 8th, 2000, some of the coral was damaged and visibility was not as good as it could have been. As far as facilities went there were none, with the exception of the ever present Island folks selling snacks and such. I have to admit though, I liked the fact that no one was around except for LeAnne and I, and of course the Islander selling Amstel Brite and Water :) Fun dive!
