Comments The weather was pretty windy for several days, restricting access to some sites but after 10 days you get to visit most of the good ones. I was worried re the effects of the hurricane on the diving. I found that the corals were surprisingly healthy, but that the fish population was down considerably from previous visits. We had heard that they were seeing different fish after the storm; we did not find this to be so. Still, overall it was still an excellent dive destination essentially uneffected by the storm. The (low) fish population could just be seasonal. The water temp was as low as I have ever seen it here, 3mm was not enough for this old body to stay warm. Some people were renting heavier suits.
Boats are in good shape, the crew was fine,the temporary pier is as good as needed, and L.C.B.R. is as good as ever. Great place to hang out while not diving.
