There was four of us that dove old marineland at approximately 8:30 am. It was low tide and waves were 2-3 at the point. Water temperature on top was 63 and below at 30-60 feet was 48 very cold. Dive time was 20-45 minutes. It was really cold. Visualbilty was 10-15 with 20-30 down below. There was a strong top current moving us toward the lighthouse. We had fellow divers on show for possible help. Down below a big thermoincline that hit your mask. We saw a school of fish and
one bat ray. None of us had a drysuit like Phil. Still an enjoyable dive with a cautious tone. Most of the rest of the divers went off the cove.
