July 6, 2004: Grand Bahama, Bahamas

A Independence Days: Bahamas 2004 dive
"Duncan's Wreck" - "Questor"
--------------------------------------------------

Two dives on a couple of wrecks. I'll have to check the pictures - I don't remember much about the second wreck ...
Diving off of Grand Bahama:
  • Directions from Tampa: It's only about 55 miles off of the coast of Florida. You can go by boat or by plane ... talk to a travel agent.
  • Conditions on the day of my visit: Sunny and hot.

  • Personal Notes: Duncan's Wreck is a fairly large cargo ship. Forgive me for not getting all of the stats. There are penetrations here and there but they are quite tight.

    The photos I took at Questor don't show much of a wreck. Checking the photos though, you'll see a cleaner shrimp giving my sister a manicure - well, that same shrimp gave me one earlier. That was the first one I had ever been able to get to do that. Very cool.

Pictures!

Duncan's Wreck
This little Juvenile Drum had staked out his spot on the boat.
Arrow Crabs are a common sight on most dive sites that we went to.
Banded Coral Shrimp like this guy weren't as common as the Arrow Crabs, but I saw a few.
Here's an Arrow Crab that was on the main deck of the wreck.
Questor
This Barred Hamlet was just one of many - but one of the few that stood still long enough for a shot.
Here's a closeup of the head of a Trumpet Fish.
My sister getting a manicure by a Peterson Cleaner Shrimp. I got one too - first time for me. It was funny to feel his little tiny claws tug occasionally at bits of skin.
This Grouper was probably getting cleaned but I didn't see many cleaner fish near him.
