    Recently went diving offshore Texas at the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary. Visibility was upwards of 100’, warm, and diving was excellent.

    Seas were generally less than a couple of feet, except on the last day. Seas were a little higher around squalls.

    Several people were seasick anyway. It could have been flat and they would have blown chunks.

    I have a long history diving out there. I’ll spare you the details. Although some stories are epic.

    The only bummer was that I brought mismatched GoPro camera and underwater housing. #fail

    The FGBNMS is famous for hard massive corals, beautiful tropical fish, and big pelagic animals like manta rays, whale sharks, and big sharks.

    The amount of tropical reef fish is impressive. Such color and variety is breathtaking.
