Comments The original plan was to dive the Spiegel and the Duane shipwrecks in a "heavy metal" tour. Eventhough there was a tropical storm on its way, the dive operator didn't cancel the trip so we went on. After many unsuccessfull attempts to reach the dive sites due to strong currents, they took us to a near shallow reef with no visibility nor fish life around. After a very poor dive, we surfaced in the middle of a terrible rain, it was literally pouring down and it was very difficult to return to the boat. Later we found out that this dive operator never cancels the trips, only when lightning involved.
