Comments I booked this trip last minute, just to get away during the holidays w/my wife. It was not to be a dive trip, but I snuck my 7 mill wetsuit in my suitcase & ducked out for one morning dive at the dive shop right in the resort. December is low, low season in Bermuda even though daytime temps reached 70 (beats Chicago in December). Because it was low season, the dive operator only would go out if he had at least a few people to take out. I dove with another guy while his family came along & snorkeled. It was a one tank morning dive just a 15-20 trip from the pier. Conditions were ideal: Completly sunny, 69 degrees, flat seas with water temp ~60 (7 mill came in handy). The dive was fantastic. The dive site featured a rock formation shaped like a very large egg with a 30' diameter in ~60' of water. The top of the "egg" had a 3' hole that let light filter into a room filled with a school of thousands of small fish (looked like glassey eyed sweepers?)saw ~dozen very large grouper two of which had to be stubbornly shewed away from the exit of this egg shaped room. Regrettably, I spotted the largest lionfish that I have ever seen--at least 14". Visibility was stunningly clear. Very healthy marine life. I wished that I could have done more diving that week, but the low season economics of December diving in Bermuda only allowed for one scheduled trip all week. I'd love to dive Bermuda again in the winter--fantastic viz!
