    Rodeo 25 & Quallman Tugs Pics

    On a Recent dive with Mrs. Swadiver (Sirene) and SFLDiver on the Rodeo 25 and Quallman Tugs off Pompano Beach, FL, got a chance to use the camera for a change. These two wreck sites are very photogenic with lots of life and growth. I saw a glimpse of a Bullshark on the Quallman Tugs, which used to be a regular occurance a few years back. it was common to see 2 to 4 sharks on most dives until i heard they were fished out by some assholes. hope they are returning. anyway a couple of pics.

    It was a nice day to be on the ocean, and barring the incident when my new camera setup drifted-off into the current without me, I have to admit, I had a great day of diving aboard Addis charters.

    Some nice pics. Especially like the lion fish. An Mrs SWAdiver is looking very comfortable in the CCR.

    I assume you were able to retrieve it since you posted a few pics....

    Yep, but it was a close call! I somehow lost control of the camera while holding on to the boat's ladder in high current, and I didn't realize until it was out of sight. I quickly told Mrs. SWADiver "I'm going after my camera" and darted off into the current. Luckily I found it in approx. 50+ ft drifting down after searching a bit.

    By that time I had drifted pretty far, so I shot a bag, did a bit of deco and waited for the calvary.
