Puerto Rico, November 1999

I have changed these pictures and added some underwater. 12-12-99 We dove with Parguera 5 days. Efra and Angel were the crew most of the days. Depths are typically 120 and 75, top of the wall is 50-75'. Viz was always 100+. Temp 83F. I would not say thefish life was as abundant as off South Florida. We saw the typical nurse sharks, lobsters, crabs, etc., but the topography and coral life was spectacular. In the afternoons, we toured the lighthouse at Cabo Rojo (snorkeling, nice beach), downtown Ponce(Fire House Museum, Tricentennial Park, El Vigia Cross, Castillo Serralles). The downtown waterfront at Parguera comes alive on the weekends when families gather there. The Phosphorescent Bay was amazing. A 15 minute speed boat ride ($5) up the coast tothis bay area where the water has become richly bioluminescent. We took a day off to tour Rio Camuy Cave and Arecibo Observatory. Last day (fly day) we toured Castillo de San Cristobal, part of the fort and wall around the old city of San Juan.
