Very windy with heavy ground swell.  Once beneath the surface diving was
enjoyable.  Returning aboard the boat was challenging because of the
violent movement of the boarding ladder.  The ladder was of the post and
peg type and if not careful one could be struck by one of the pegs when
attempting to grasp the ladder.

A school of Tarpon was encountered beneath the boat on a shallow dive.  The
school remained motionless even though the divers swam amongst the school.

Ten to a dozen reef sharks of various sizes from 3' to 8' were seen on a
pinnacle dive at 90' to 100'.  The sharks were attacking with vigor
something beneath a reef for ten or more minutes.

The character of the bottom reminded me of Hawaii but, with brighter coral.
 Other than those mentioned, not much large fish life.
