sunny sky ocean adventure not to be forgotten soon

As I lounge here with the scent of today's catch cooking, a mangrove snapper that just melts in your mouth, I know it will make a great and tasty dinner.

The fishing was great we caught a lots of fish and snorkeling was comfortable, no current and warmly inviting.

Well gotta run, diner.

what a pleasure taking my yacht to sea here in keyw

The waters around Key West are very warm and a tad foggy, but the snorkeling sure is fun. Saw a tarpon from above as I pulled into the reef and then dove down on top of him. Sneaking up on a fish can be fun, totally. I caught this tarpon with his pants down when I swam down for this picture of him. I knew when he saw me because I startled him and he jumped fast and than settled down.

Fishing has been super, slamming lots of hungry fish, catching barracudas are great for a reason, it must be the shows, the sheer excitement of them jumping in the air, their tail waking across the water in front of your amazed eyes. We landed two, one for each person that tried for a great barracuda. My happy shipmates also caught a tasty horse eyed juvenile jack for a dinner snack. Thanks for reading my blog, my readers rule thanks please come back for more tales aboard the yacht Delphine

splendid ocean fun enveloped all aboard the Delphine

There is something about holidays that puts excitement in the air for everybody. Between the two charters I swam over tons of ocean terrain with my shipmates. This morning had extreme fun with some shipmates who have joined me for ocean adventures four times now, this to me is the greatest compliment to my trip with all the choices here in Key West. We were fortunate and had wonderful stuff happen, as on most of my trips. It was amazing how hungry the fish were today, practically jumping on our hooks, as for the barracudas they wanted everything we caught. We had to reel, really fast, barely escaping their hungry jaws, however my shipmates did get a few it only cost the cudas a photo session aboard the Delphine.
