The rays are back...

visibility: up to a very nice 60 feet!
water temperature: dropped a bit to 79º on depth
currents: slowly pushing you trough the reef
surface conditions: every now and then some wind, thus waves, especially in the evenings...

But the diving is great, the reef full of life. Already the cow nose rays are back and crossing El Bajo in groups of say 25 up to over 150!!! Also the sand is covered with the diamond sting rays and even eagle rays are spotted. Add this to the turtles that we see now and of course all the grouper, pork fish, burrito grunt, balloon fish etc. etc. and you've got a dive of a life time.
Rays coming in already this year... This is early, and it might mean that the winter comes early too. Under water, that is; a winter with the colder water and the lower visibility, because of the algae. Lower visibility because of 'ray-food'. Come over now, while the vis is still great and see what we do: wow, we love our job!
