It's time to write The Blog again to keep the information flowing to those of you following the "Life" on our very scuba friendly tropical island.
Here is where I usually wax eloquently about the guests, the dives, the sightings and etc. But boys and girls, it grieves me to say it, I got nothin'. September is the official start of the slow season here on Roatan. I imagine with school starting, and the beautiful weather you can get in the states right now would distract one from tropical thoughts. A bit of a shame really, the water couldn't be better! Temperatures at depth are around 84 F, with the visibility in excess of 100' quite often, and the surface as smooth as a billiard table down at the Blue Mango (don't ask).
Another bonus to this part of the season is that the staff is rested, bored, about played out when it comes to bored games, and itching to get in the water! Their usual life of tediously diving three times a day has disappeared, and they need some dive buddies. If you were here now we could watch them fight over you!(OK, I'm a little bored too).
It's so quiet Beast actually woke up and went out to lure the walk-in divers here.
We just got word from one of our fishermen friends that he came across a 60' Whale Shark this morning between the islands headed for our area on Roatan! And four divers just walked in and for some reason, going and finding it is OK with them! We're going diving.
