Default Vis prediction this week Russian Freighter

Buddy & I thinking of taking my boat out to Russian Freighter & maybe 3 Coal Barges too early one morning this week. (will be first time diving off my own boat.)

Been looking at the marine forecast ... but any idea what we might expect for visibility out there this coming Wed or Thursday?

Vis on both wrecks should be great. Last week they were great about 30 ft.

Andy Dont worry both spots have been Commercially cleaned of fish. It is a nice recreational dive though.

Thanks. I figured they would be as I've dived both before ... but my buddy was concerned so I told him I'd ask.

We're just gonna be swimming around looking at the fishies & trying out my GoPro camera I've not used much yet.

Well we finally got out to the freighter for a couple of dives yesterday (sunday) morning ... vis 30' plus, pretty stiff surface current; lots of fishies of all sorts; & one big-*ss bull shark kept coming around to check us out. Saw tons of turtles on the way out & the way back in .... munching on jellies I guess? Saw dolphins aplenty all day as well at both at the Russian Freighter, the Massachusetts & in the pass.

What I have found over the last 4 years diving here is that here recently, it seems like the public spots have at least one resident shark on it. Fire a speargun and his buddies show up as well. I see sharks on every dive and still not comfortable when they start doind circles...
