Wow what are the fish in first picture?
That's at night?? Wow, seems like a lot of light for a night dive. b-)Those are Caribbean Reef Squid. This was on our last dive right before we exited the water in about 15-20 ft. There was a school of about 30 squid. They measured about 1 foot in length. They were the darker color, but if you notice the two in the middle they are lighter. If you got too close to these little critters they would become this "blanched" lighter color. I agree with Subkrawler, Octopus are probably one of my favorite creatures of the sea, but these little squid are probably second.
Simple. I wrong it read! :-dThe dive was during the day. I am not sure where you got the idea it was at night.
You can't understand how many times I have done that same exact thing. I try to read faster than my brain can process the information. I end up making a mess of thingsSimple. I wrong it read! :-d
"...our last dive right before we left the water...." somehow in my mind read "...our last night dive before we left....".
Hmm... maybe I'm dyslexic? That would explain a lot of things..... :-d
On the list of things to see for me is the Oriskany, (aircraft carrier off Pensacola FLA.) or "the big O" as they call it.Jason, I recall the 'Hooker, I was very active in diving about that time. Wouldn't mind seeing it some day! The only ocean wreck I've been on was the Mercedes, off Ft. Lauderdale. First time was the year after they put 'er down, the next was around 5 years later.

My favorite wreck to date has been the Stavronikita. It is a 365 foot wreck in about 140ft right off the coast of Barbados. Several years ago, a diver could penetrate it quite a bit, but now it is unsafe to do so. Very cool wreck though.
