Vis is horrible. If you like diving in chocolate milk with less than a foot of vis then don't waste your time. Jellyfish are still everywhere, current was slow and the temps in the mid 80's

    With a few days of a south east wind the waters should clear up by next week. Time will tell especially with this other hurricane off the coast. Even if we avoid the hit as I'm sure we will there will still be a swell.

    I think it was from the river, westpalm was 40 feet and jupiter was 1 foot is that right or is it from the swell ?

    Let us know how you make out. I'm stuck with work due to the holiday weekend so no diving for me. Enjoy and be safe.

    The water was awesome last weekend and the current was perfect.... Viz was great too! You can say it was towards the ocean side of Elliot and the jellyfish were way less... I was able to catch plenty of lobsters and shoot a few shots at some dogs and school master.... I'm going out tomorrow again but its suppose to be a bit choppy... I just hope the current will behave and the viz will be good...

    I think I'll head out Monday and do a couple spec dives to see whats happening in the area. I was hoping to get out later in the week but the seas appear to be building. If there is a couple of hours of good weather I should be able to squeeze in a dive or two. I'll let you know how I make out.
