Technical diving in Miami since 1990

Customs Reef and Sea Taxi

Last weekend we hit all four vessels in the Customs Reef (150FT).   The initial team was Henry, David, and Joel, but Henry aborted on the surface due to a scooter problem.  We climbed back aboard and David and I re-dropped.  The surface current was ripping, with clear 73 degree water.  At about 100ft the current stopped, but we encountered cold (68 degrees), milky water with poor visibility, perhaps 15-20ft.  Still a good dive, I'm impressed we managed to find all four vessels in the reduced visibility!

Second dive was on the Sea Taxi (120FT), Henry and I dove, David sat out having gotten too cold on the first dive.  Lots of life on the wreck, a little better visibility and not too much current.  A massive school of sardene like fish surrounded the wreck and were great to watch as they flowed around the site.
