Wreck Trek- The Bibb, Eagle, & Spiegel Grove. This was a club dive,
with about 20 of us along. The Bibb lies on it's side,starts at about 90
ft., and on that day was the sparsest of the 3 wrecks. In attendance were a
school of Atlantic spades, trumpetfish, and sharp nose puffers. The Eagle,
the second dive, we dove at about 80 ft. It had far more life on it-also
lots of growth. The residents: a pair of large green morays were sitting
together out in the open- as if posing! Parrots, groupers, jacks,
silversides,& butterflies were abundant. The following day we were
going to do the Spiegel Grove and the Duane- but due to cond. on the Duane,
we did two dives on the Grove, which were two great dives. Abundant life-
angels, parrots, snappers, groupers, porkfish,jacks,trumpetfish, sharpnose
puffers. The neatest part of the dive was the huge Goliath groupers just
floating out in the water column. All four dives were easy dives-we had no
current on any of the wrecks during the time frame we were there. The dive
operation is friendly, helpful, and great. They always take a roll call,
and do a thorough briefing. There was a covered area to wait in before the
dives (out of the sun), and afterwards, there were rolling racks where we
hung our wetsuits and boots overnight. I would recommend this dive
operation!
