Dive, Dive, Dive

We've promised ourselves at least one real dive trip every year and this year we booked a week on the Blackbeard Cruises. It was supposed to be a group trip with our New Jersey dive buddies - just like last year - but Hurricane Joaquin put a stop to that. Nassau airport was closed on Friday 10/3 for fear that the hurricane was going to hit them hard, but it didn't, so our flight on Saturday morning was fine. But Joaquin was still blowing and was possibly headed to New Jersey, so our friends cancelled. We missed them, but it did make for a less crowded boat! Only 16 passengers.

 We had beautiful weather for our week, but the visibility was pretty poor due to the hurricane passing thru. Do not book a trip on this boat if you're accustomed to hot showers and clean towels. You bring your own towels and use them all week. There is one shower on board, but you are honor-bound to only use it for 30 seconds! We didn't even do that. Apparently it is a myth that salt water leaves you sticky! We did rinse off a little after each dive with a hose at the back, but no soap for a week! This is camping on the water.

We LOVE being on the ocean!

Here is a short video, made by Google Photos, that encapsulates our week:
