New Video Promotes Kingston Diving and our Wrecks...

Harold and Anne at Kingston Dive Charters feature in an excellent video distributed by Canada Travel and featuring Kingston's wreck diving opportunities. Well done to both of them. It's great to see someone stepping up to do the job that our City and its tourism offices should be doing...

If you visit the site, be sure to comment positively and encourage everyone to come and share our wrecks - and contribute to their protection.

Fish sighted - Cayman Brac

Here's an update. Started scootering from shore. Its a hoot, especially when the current us up. Save a lot on air. But you have to be careful not to go to far. Water temp is between 81 and 83.

No pictures, but here is a short list of what we saw:
-Spotted Eagle Ray, 6 turtles (on the last dive), peacock flounder, Yellowtail Snapper (very tasty), Queen Couch (in season and very tasty too), Stingray, Spotted Moray Eel, etc,

There are 41 positively identified and more the I am not sure about.
