That's Not The Erl King

Biscayne Nat Park Alinas or New Ball Reef across from Anniversary Reef N 25-23.192 W 080-09.782 coordinates a few fish small reef sea grass Horrible vis. Swam over the reef a couple times, then Chris took off as we found it again & lost us. We surfaced to find him & went to the boat, but he didn't come in, hence the long surface stop before going back out. Then we couldn't find the reef and got called back to boat. Looks like it would be a nice reef if you could see it. Entry sucked because of the choppy water and couldn't breath without reg. So I wasted a lot of air getting to the anchor line to descend. Because we regrouped in open water and drifted far from the boat.
