Comments: We tried unsuccessfully to find the Snake Eel, but did find other things to make for a great dive. After giving up the search for the snake eel we found a large Mantis shrimp nearby. I stuffed a cod fillet about six inches in front of its burrow, but he wouldn't come out. I moved it closer and before I could get in position for a photo op, he grabbed the dinner and rushed into his hole.
We swam toward the Point where Merry spotted a school of Jack Mackeral, Barracuda and later, a five foot Batray. I found a sponge. :(
The vis was good, especially considering how bad it's been for the past two weeks. We'll try again tomorrow to find the Snake eel, but if we have another dive like today's, I'll be thrilled. Because it was Saturday, Rabbi Al was in charge of the congregation. The Rev will be back tomorrow.
