Triangle is near the causeway that joins St. George to the rest of
Bermuda;
they are working to garner the business for the northern end of the
islands.

They pick up and drop off to the cruise boat dock at St. George -- we
learned this
after cabbing to their office.

Their boat was old and not a great setup for scuba (one ladder, extra long,
for a
SNUBA-style hard-hat bottom walk that they and some other Bermuda
operations
offer to non divers), but the staff were working hard to make the dive
experience
a good one.  We dived our own gear, but observed minor repairs done
instantly to 
their rental gear.

Dives were in afternoon, and first was a shallow reef at the northern
corner of the
whole Bermuda reef system.  Nice healthy coal, but limited species so far
from the 
equator.  Basically coral heads forming a maze around a modest blue hole.

Second was on the wreck of a dredge, scuttled around 1900.  The locals just
didn't
need the boat any more and did a good job of sendng it down to 80 feet,
standing
upright and opened up enough for non-hardcore-wreckers to swim through.

It had been there long enough to grow some brain coral on it and was
especially 
glorious in the blue-lipped tunicates that formed fist-sized clusters in
many
places on the upper surfaces and edges.  Viz was clouded by rough wind so 
swimming down the mooring to the wreck and keep it in sight was the only
reasonable nav for this dive.

Bermuda's massive reef system has been wrecking boats since humans got the
technology to sail there, and it is still at work.  Seeing these is the
reason to dive
here -- it is not the sparkling clear water and creature zoo of the beter
Carib
sites.  

Triangle is serving the northern sites well, and the hurricanes lurking to
the
south and east when we were there (18-22 Sept 06)  made the north the only
game in town.
