Hi everyone, I’m back!
There are times when I wish I hadn’t gone diving as the weather, yes, does get bad and worse, there is no sunshine! Well this past Sunday was amazing…. It was by far one the best days in a couple of months and mind you I only go on Sundays….
Dave, the boat captain and owner of Provo Turtles, asked me where I wanted to go and I said Northwest Point and that was it. There was only 5 of us on the boat which is GREAT!
Our first dive as at a site called two steps and I went deep (42m) and got narc…. What a great feeling! The second dive didn’t have a name and it was near the canyons. We all jumped in and it was an amazing dive with great viz but it was at the end of the dive that made it all worthwhile for all of us….
We came upon a group of tiny red squids and they were not shy and loved the attention from all of us, especially the ones with cameras. We were all obsessed with getting that perfect shot! And so here are mine including a short video… enjoy!

Well, I made a big exception and took off Monday to go diving with Joana’s cousin, Marta, who had just arrived from Lisbon.
The sea was much calmer today and our first dive was at the Channel between Northwest Point of Provo and West Caicos Island. Man, it was by far the best dive I’ve had so far in TCI. There are lots of nutrients coming through the channel and the sea life there was incredible! Immediately after we splashed, we saw giant stingrays, sharks, and then this giant and graceful eagle ray gliding by…. hell, this reef is definitely on my top list to dive again and maybe I should be diving more on Mondays instead of Sundays!
it’s been a while since i have posted diving pictures…we’ve been off island, plus, james hasn’t been diving, as most of the diving centers have been closed during September.
these pictures are from one of james’ outings to northwest point in the end of august – they went to the thunderdome, the remains of a large sphere built under about 30 feet of water, where they filmed the french tv show in the 90’s.
