Scott Chaffee's Dive Log
Hilma Hooker on 5/9/2001
Nice easy dive, watch your depth and time, large tarpon in hull, wreck lays on its side, explore the reef on way out and way back in. Something different after diving reefs all week.
Town Pier on 5/9/2001
This is a not-to-miss night dive, but try to schedule with DM when large groups will not be there as it will be too crowded. We went on a Monday with 4 of us and there was a small group coming out when we went in and on the way out a small group was heading out. On Tuesday and Wednesday there were large groups there. Frogfish, seahorses, decorator crabs, juvenile fish of all kinds, free-swimming eels and the yellow and orange colors where everywhere. Do not miss this dive!

Dove this site several times as this is the resort I stayed at. Nice dive right off our doorstep. Tons of life on this reef, several small sunken ships, can go deep if you want to. Seahorses, sharptail eels, peacock flouners, cudas, scorpionfish, all the usual and unusual reef creatures.
