More pics from an early July trip. http://www.flickr.com/photos/mentalblock/collections/72157624598861059/ Really enjoyed an area out beyond the pier and (I think) nearly in line with it where there were lots of Glassy Sweepers schooled up down in the reef and a bunch of Juvenile Grunts (French?) schooled up above them, with lots of Juvenile Bar Jacks darting around. I also was surprised by a ray when nearly back to shore, and after failing to get the camera to focus on it before it went out of sight, I realized that the only time that I had seen a ray flap its wings in that manner was when I had the pleasure of visiting with Molly the Manta off Little Cayman many years ago. This little guy couldn't have been more than five feet wide. I've since read that others have seen mantas in the area of late.

Dove with a buddy for three days at the end of May. We stayed at a place on the beach, north of the pier. We're a couple of old guys, so carrying the load from the room to entry was a chore, but ultimately worth the trouble, especially considering the long bottom time at the shallow depths. We're going back soon to try it south of the pier. Google Earth makes it look like maybe there's more reef over on that side. Sort of documented what I saw with (too many) photos at http://www.flickr.com/photos/mentalblock/collections/72157624430180836/ Since I enjoy the colorful juveniles and the long bottom times, this may become my favorite dive site - especially since no airports must be involved with the tolerable drive from Savannah.
