Puerto Rico Report: Day 4

Divers out on the water our fourth day in Puerto Rico found the sun had brought light winds and calm seas along with great visibility.

The water “cooled” to a pleasant 79°F. Visibility was significantly better for both dives around 75’ despite the shallower depths

Our first dive began on the Aquidilla Reef just before lunch with a maximum depth of around 40-45′.

The second dive on Crash Boat Reef was the shallowest of the week with a maximum depth of around 30′.

Both reefs offered an excellent variety of marine life and helped to demonstrate the different varieties of sea life in the different oceanic zones to the Marine Ecology students on the trip. Sadly, tomorrow is the final day of diving though we plan to make the most of it with an advanced/computer deep dive.
