Debbie Bennett's Dive Log
Boca Catalina on 2/8/2005
(Snorkeler) This was our 4th year to visit Aruba, and Boca Catalina was always pretty nice. However, everything was covered with a layer of sand and some of the plant life had died, thanks to Hurricane Ivan. Hope it will return to better conditions by next year!
Mangel Halto Reef on 2/8/2005
Dec 12-23. Snorkeler This place was absolutely wonderful. Corals and gorgonians big as cars out past the inlet in the rougher water. It looks scary, but the current is really quite manageable, it usually just tries to bring you back to the bay. I spent part of every day for 10 days there and always had something new to see. One day drifted from Pos Coquito to Mangel Halto. That was a nice easy drift in about 15-30 feet of water. No damage from Ivan.
