My dive buddy and I stopped in a bit late in the afternoon December 11th, 2014. We arrived about 15:50 hrs and were suited up and diving by 16:32. Our plan was to catch a few crabs for dinner. There were tons of dungenous crabs here. We used the chase 'em, scoop 'em, and bag 'em method. It worked well to my surprise and we caught 4 eaters in 21 minutes. Unfortunately, I lost sight of Talis in the 15 ft visibility and we surfaced. By this time it was dark. The shore lights along the road made it easy to swim back in the right direction to shore.
