Comments 5 days of mod./ high winds; so seas were rough; 2 divers got sea sickness; so they did only 1 dives; DM Juan speared lionfish and fed a trigger fish and a nurse shark; lots of nurse sharks and 1 black tip reef shark; DM also hugged a nurse shark.
not much coral; lots of sand and brown stuff; but, DM and boat captain (Samir) were good and polite; I only did 2 dives that week-- poor viz., lack of fishes and coral and rough seas.
Weather was good, no rain so far and cooling winds prevented bugs from accumulating; high food costs at resorts. Other trips to Belize were good but down south.

Really! A DM hugging a nurse shark! What happened to the "no touch" rule? I think this is a poor example all around. I also think deliberately feeding lionfish to other marine life is not a good idea. It just helps other fish to become less cautious of spearfishing divers. We divers need to be observers and not participants in my opinion.
