Evaluation

*Average:    3.81
My wife and I dove the jetties again for the first time this year. The visibility was about 40' and that was due to the choppy seas and the crazy cross breezes. Water was in the mid 70's. I wore a shorty and was fine; wife is 115lbs and wore a 5mm and was fine. Current was pushing a little hard for her; and I thought it was a Minnie drift dive. We went between noon and 3PM, and after that the current starts pulling out to the open water. Marine life was abundant and there was one of the largest grouper that I have ever seen (in that close to shore) probably 300lbs and very friendly. Saw an array of fish, and enjoyed most of the dive. We will be here until Memorial Day and if anyone needs a dive buddy we will be right next to the store (my wife has the bright PINK BC and fins).
