I had two visitors at the Florida Sea Base yesterday; the first was an 8′ manatee that hung out around the T-Dock for a while.

The second visitor was Scuba Instructor Richard Goldman.  Mr. Goldman is here this weekend to continue his work on scuba certifications for Florida Sea Base staff members.


The Scuba Adventure participants were pleased with yesterday’s dives.  They reported 45′ of visibility with building seas.  Today may be challenging with building winds and seas.


One of the Coral Reef Sailing crews returned today for their luau.  They said they had a great week with Captain Giuseppe on S/V Silent Harmony.


The wind increased as forecasted but was tolerable for the divers.  We may break 80ºF this afternoon.  Our overnight low was 74°.  The wind forecast has been dialed down from 20 knots to 15 knots for today and tomorrow.  That’s a little bumpy for our current Scuba Adventure crew but hopefully they have been acclimating during their stay and will be able to handle it.
