Hitting the Wall

July 14th, 2013 by SeaTrek Staff |

Wall Diving! So today was our chance to enjoy some deeper wall dives off the island of Eleuthera

We did our first dive at a site called Hole in the Wall where we literally swam through a hole in the wall of the reef. It was really neat…pictures soon to come. We also saw and logged a few more lionfish. After the dive we headed to a beautiful bay where the Marine Heritage Awareness Specialty Course students surveyed a shallow wreck called the Tres Viejas. We then followed the tides in and out of the adjacent mangroves, which were absolutely gorgeous. Imagine a lazy river ride built by mother nature! With a few hours out of the water it was time for another wall dive called Monolith. There was much to see and for our young divers, it was exciting to go a little deeper than we have in the past week. By going deeper we were able to experience some different corals and reef species. Then we headed to our night anchorage just off the shore from the Cape Eleuthera Institute where we will spend the next 10 days working with their educators, researchers, and students. Early to bed so we will be ready to go in the morning!
