'Merica, F%#& yeah

suckerfish-remora, lobster, spotted drum, huge angels, needlefish, boxfish, huge puffer, feather duster, chimneys. Dropped on top of reef with dive flag & went down to ~45', followed reef line drifting, but not much current & not always in same direction due to slack tide. I was SUPER heavy, fighting to stay off the bottom most of dive until 1000psi. Fun to be just our little group. Took more flag photos. Ryan & Jennie ran out of air & went up first, Chad & I stayed another 10 mins. Saw a huge puffer at the start, some huge angels, boxfish, a lobster, 2 big adult spotted drum, and feather dusters (like inverted christmas trees). Lots of big chimneys like in Roatan. Lots of needlefish. At safety stop saw curious feeder- remora- with bloody lip.
