Weather for Divers and Ducks

WX-Heavy rainfall and grey clouds for the whole day. But flat seas. Vis- very good.

90 divers on the island but only 20 saw the school and another 20 saw one. By now we guess you know what we mean by 'school and one'. Percentage of sightings are high but unfortunately some divers have zero percentage. Make sure you're in a group of divers with high percentage in luck or else, better luck next time.

All in all, not a bad day. Divers might consider looking at the reef fishes for a change. It's quite pretty, really. Think of it this way, if there were no reef, no reef fishes, no reef fishes means no reef predators, no reef predators means no big big big fishes (pelagics). And the pelagics need the reef fishes to do a bit of cleaning for them from time to time. We take it divers are aware of the cycle of life underwater. Or it will the birds for them.

The know alls are still in the blue trying but the other divers near the reef are the lucky ones. Good luck.
