Comments 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.
