open up your mindl lets go for a wlld key west ride

The weather service said that these are the two best days this week so off we went, it made our day and we were joyed the blue water that was in because of the weather. Before we went into the reef for our adventure I gave my usual speech about the dangers of snorkeling which made my snorkelers stay close. Later there was a wild exciting stir amongst the snorkels, I heard later from the discription that it was a hammerhead that the snorkelers spotted. I said to my shipmates, I DID NOT SEE IT,ONE SNORKELERS SAID IT WAS A BONNET HEAD THEY ARE SMALLER, THE SAME FAMILY AS HAMMERHEADS. We dropped anchor in a calm spot and I looked at my shipmates and said, are you guys out of shock yet, let's fish. Wow, we sure did fill the bucket with 20 plus fish, a large fish eat our bait, but he won today, so we ended up just getting his picture on the surface as eat our live bait.

smooth seas screaming ultra beauty overwhelming

splish, splash and off we went. Its always a wonderful feeling exploring the undersea world, gawking at the eminence amount of fish scurrying about the reef. As we soared on the calm clear turquoise ocean surface, we came across my favorite spot, what I call the donut and a Goliath grouper was chilling under it. I made a video for you to take a look at. Later my shipmates landed a huge barracuda we also battled a lots of fish on this wonderful key west day

how lucky to snorkel & fish to bad its not every day

yippee ,we headed out for some ocean fun. The fish seemed really happy to see the Delphine, we set out the chum bag and it was like the dinner bell was ringing. It was like a ocean soup line, the fish lined up for us and our waiting hooks. We fought a few nice barracudas, the first one she caught jumped in the air and gave us a great battle and show. Later her husband caught a cuda also and we all landed a bunch of fish. It was nice to be at sea with its wild blueness embracing the yacht Delphine and gently rocking her under the sunny blue Key West sky.
