West Point Wall

March 18, 2014

Our surface interval was spent on a small island dedicated to the preservation of the rare Red Footed Booby Bird. Insert boob joke here. They live in the treetops and there was an observation deck.

The last dive off the day turned out to be an easy one. When we descended to the ocean floor, we encountered a bit of a current. After swimming into it for a few minutes, our dive master gave up the fight and went with the flow. We wound up drifting the wall for the next 40 minutes. A great way to end a day of relativity challenging diving.

The reefs here were in possibly the best condition of anywhere I've been. Variety, colour, and plenty of wild life. Here's a sample of the West Point Wall.

A mercifully uneventful ascent and we were back on the boat. As it happens, just in time for for coconut rum and pineapple juice to while away the 2 1/2 hours back to port.
