PART OF MY WEBSITE IS IN
Snorkeling stories will be updated
when the water get warm. The water is 63° now.
There is a new Snorkeling
Story about every two - three weeks. In the winter the fish section of
this website goes into hibernation because the water gets too cold here.
So there probably won't be any new stories during winter.
The Snorkeling Reports
are in order from
oldest to newest.
SNORKELING REPORT FOR SEPTEMBER 5TH
I only went
out to Lemon reef today, because the weather wasn't that nice, but I did see
a new juvenile school master and a new stoplight parrot fish. Weather
conditions: Overcast with small showers, slight breeze from the southeast.
Temperature is around 80º F and humidity
is around 70%. Water is very
SNORKELING REPORT FOR SEPTEMBER 18TH (Monday)
We have had a lot of new
fish in Lemon reef, but we haven't gone out to the Cay yet but we will soon.
Weather conditions: very hot and Sunny, no breeze. Temperature is around 84º
F and humidity is around 63%. Water is kind of murky.
SNORKELING REPORT FOR SEPTEMBER 20TH (Monday)
We went to the Gaulding Cay
today! We saw four big Bar Jack at the end of the cay, but I didn't have a
chance to get a picture of them. We saw a lot of juvenile Stoplight
parrotfish, and a few Nassau groupers. The fish are getting so calm at Lemon
reef that I fed some out of my hand. We saw a sand diver (see
Weather conditions: Sunny. Breeze from the southeast. Temperature: n/a and
humidity: n/a. Water is clear.
SNORKELING REPORT FOR SEPTEMBER 24TH (Wednesday)
We went out to the cay
three times today and saw three yellow stingrays and got some pictures of
them. We also saw a huge Porcupine fish, in a cave, and two Nassau groupers,
we didn't see any Bar Jack. We saw the Lane snapper that always stays out at
the grass patch. Weather conditions: Sunny with clouds. Strong breeze from
the southeast. Temperature is 89º F and
humidity is 53%. Water Temperature: 91º
SNORKELING REPORT FOR OCTOBER 1ST (Wednesday)
We went to
Louis's nursery! We saw a lot of new fish plus a turtle, he was really cool
because he was moving so slow, we didn't get a picture of him because we
only saw him from a distance, and when we swam towards him he left. There
some very pretty goat fish with a yellow stripe that runs down their body,
we also saw a scorpion fish for the first time. The scorpion fish we saw was
on a rock camouflaged very well. Scorpion fish are about six to fourteen
inches long, they have venomous spines on their fins, and many people who
get stung black out. Unfortunately we used up all the pictures on our camera
so we couldn't get a picture of the scorpion fish. When we got back and
uploaded the pictures we thought it would have been better to delete all the
pictures just for one of the scorpion fish. We also got some pictures of a
stingray. Some of the pictures we took are in the
section. Weather conditions : Sunny. Hardly any breeze. Temperature: 90º
F and humidity is 56%. Water Temperature: 81º
SNORKELING STORY FOR THE 8TH
OF OCTOBER 2003
We have not been snorkeling that much because the water has been murky.
We can hand feed almost all the fish at Lemon reef. One of the Schoolmasters
got bit by something that was pretty big (see below) , you can see the cut
from a distance. My mom and dad were wondering if it the could be the lemon
shark (see news)
that we've seen on the mornings of October sixth and seventh. I don't think
it was him, I think it was the Nassau grouper that hangs around.
We also went to Gaulding Cay today and saw a spotted moray eel that
was looking right at us. We tried to get a picture of him but it didn't come
out, because he was in the shadow of the overhang of the cay. Spotted eels
get to four feet long, but the one we saw was about two feet long. They have
a pattern like composition tablets. Hopefully the water will clear soon
enough for the next snorkeling story. Weather conditions: Sunny, with some
breeze. Temperature: 75º F. Water is somewhat murky.
People have been here since January 26 2005.
