Glenroy Adams, DM and owner, did a fantastic job keeping our group of seven
sailors -- with every level of dive (in)experience -- together and happy on
some speedy drifts. He immediately saw that the two of us were relaxed and
experienced drift divers and let us hang back from the less experienced
group, pick our depth and linger when we found something interesting.
Glenroy explored and named most of the dive sites in this area, so he knows
whom to take where and when.

With seven plus two crew, the small boat was cramped. Runs were very short
so it didn't matter. As is S.O.P. in these islands, equipment was set up by
the crew and taken back to their shop for care between dives.

The hard corals were very banged up by Hurricane Ivan in 2004 and, after an
unusually rainy autumn, runoff from the Orinoco River severely limited
visibility. Glenroy said that viz is much greater in summer. There's some
big litter (empty paint cans, tires, etc.) on the bottom. 

The animals don't seem to care about any of this or about divers. There
were plenty of accessible nurse sharks, turtles, rays, eels, small tropical
fish and macro critters to entertain us. We tried but, due to swirling
current, failed to dive the Purini wreck.
