This was David's first time at Ginnie and his first real attempt at using his new dry suit. We decided to start at the Ballroom to get David trimmed out. We made sure he was properly purged and got in the water. He was still too buoyant but decided it might get better at depth. We made our way down to the cavern and the buoyancy problem disappeared.

We went straight down to the grate. The flow was kicking and I had a tough time getting up to it. I held on to it for a minute then let go and floated back with the current. David tried to get to it next. I think he swam up and touched it, but that was about it. From there, we swam around the cavern. We went around the back and up through the squeeze. We took a few pictures. I noticed my gas was getting low since I started with used tanks. I wanted to take David to the Eye and Ear so I decided to end the dive early so there would be enough gas to do another dive.
