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.
