Dove Friday with Discovery Diving on Outrageous with about 16 divers. Long,
very rough trip (over 1 1/2 hrs) out to U352 sub and Spar wrecks.  Vis
about 5-60 feet.  Deep dives (90-106 feet), so you really had to watch you
no deco time.  Lots of barracuda at sub at about 50-60 feet.  Schools of
bait fish, Atlantic spade, jacks, intermediate queen angel fish.  Lots of
sand tiger sharts at Spar. Little coral on either wreck, but that's not
what you do these dives for.  Dove two days on Capt's Lady (a six-pack)
with Leroy (boat owner).  Two dives Sat. on Caribsea; lots of sand tiger
sharks, some pretty soft corals, sting rays; vis 50-60 feet.  Sun, U352 and
Spar, but vis only about 30-40 compared to Fri. Take of your scuba unit in
the water and Leroy lifts it into boat while you use swim platform in back:
flop yourself on, then get in boat.  These dives are definitely for AOW
only, as the wrecks are at 80-100 feet and you can't really do a
multi-level dive unless you want to hang at 50 feet and watch the
barracudas.  All dives had line down to wrecks for descent and ascent.
