Last weekend AZ-DiveBuddies made their spring return to Lake Mohave and Cabinsite Point.
This past weekend AZ-DiveBuddies headed to Rocky Point Mexico for a couple of dives. We contracted with Sun & Fun for a trip to Bird Island aboard the Sirenas De Las Noches. This boat was recently acquired and it is still undergoing refit for diving but it’s already a fine platform to dive from. The Capt and crew are a well seasoned dive boat crew and were very helpful throughout the day.
Dive #1 was on the North side of Bird island at a site known as Rock Bridge. we dropped down to about 20′ and immediately were greeted by a large group of Sea Lions who were swimming in a swarm like a school of fish with individuals stopping to playfully nibble at our fins or swim around behind us. The sheer number of these playful creatures was beyond anything I had previously experience in other locations.
For dive #2 we ran around to the island’s north side and anchored in Lighthouse Cove. This dive was a bit more relaxing with only an occasional pass by a Sea Lion we focused more on the fish and searching the bottom for more unusual creatures.
We had a great time even though a storm the day before reduced visibility to 15′ and are in the process forging a great affiliation with Sun & Fun dive center for our members. Look forward to our announcement of member discounts and trip packages coming soon.
