Comments The water was colder than anticipated. I wound up wearing 2 3mm wet suits and a hood. There were lots of sharks: nurse and reef. The guides liked to spear lionfish and feed them to the sharks, which created some very close encounters with sharks, although they seemed to view us as in the way of their meal, rather than as a meal. There are 2 hawksbill turtles near the Pumpkin Patch dive site, who like to pose for photos.
