This turned out to be a very cool dive! I teamed up with Lennis and Desiree. We went down to the wreck and found a nice large hull with big open comparments. Desiree shot straight down in and started swimming through pipes and stuff. I pointed out to her how much silt she was stirring up to let her know how dangerous this could be. We swam through each compartment then through a hole at the bottom and out the back. We saw some big goliath groupers. Desiree pointed out a huge moray eel. She wanted to pet it but I pulled her back by the fin. :-)

Little by little, folks started returning to the boat. I kept close tabs on my air and Desiree's air. We still had plenty so we stayed down and played around. We saw a cute baby box fish. Once everyone else had returned to the boat, Desiree and I went up, stopping at the half-way point for a 2 min safety stop, then stopping again for out 15 foot, 3 min safety stop. This was a great dive! Desiree had a blast!
