Default Oriskany Report - The Visibility is here and the water is getting warm!!

We got out on the H2O Below yesterday and headed out to the Oriskany. When we got there, there were aready a few folks on it. It was like a family reunion out on the O. It was good to see Jeff, Schleppy, Shane, Mike, and Bubba. It was like getting the gang back together. Anyway, the visibility has been amazing the last couple of days out on the O. It was easily 100 ft or better. I rolled over the side of the boat to tie in yesterday and could see divers swimming around on the flight deck at 135ft. The water temp is also coming up. I got 70 on the surface and 69 at depth. So now is the time to come and dive the Oriskany, you won't be disappointed.

Thanks for the report Rich. I have not been out in about a month and the viz was horrible back then. I need to get out bad. Hopefully soon.

Okay guys, that's enough. I don't want to read all about the great conditions when I can't be out there as well. :banghead

Seriously; glad to hear the season is getting off to a good start. Sniper, how is that BC working out for you ?

I dove it saturday and the viz WAS great.

Strange. A dive charter captain told me the day before it was terrible, and only 10 feet. Wow. What a differnece a day can make..I guess.

The Oriskany, I have heard of that.

Is it anything like the Spiegel Grove? I dove that last summer. It was really cool! Lots of marine life.

Is the Oriskany a cool place to dive?
