    First Dive at Lula, off the Cee Ray

    After about a 20 minute boat ride, we anchored at our next destination… “Lula.”

    According to Captain Mike, the Cee Ray is the only dive boat that anchors here.

    I was pointed in the direction of a nice reef, “North-West of the boat” and then “just follow the reef North.”

    Logged SCUBA Dive #411

    I submerged and went North-West.

    The land of the Giant Kelp

    I entered the “Land of the Giant Kelp.”

    Huge kelp bulbs.

    I know that water magnifies things by 25%, but this kelp was the largest I’ve ever seen – strands as wide as a sheet of dry wall and bulbs as big as my fist.

    However, I came to the realization, that I had missed the reef completely.

    I swam back in the direction of the boat, missing it completely, and running into a very shallow, but colorful reef, and a couple other divers.

    After surfacing to get my bearings, I made a short underwater swim back to the Cee Ray.

    1. I enjoyed your report of the Cee Ray. I just booked one of their few open boats that they do and have never been on this boat before so it helps to know alittle. Also I am glad I am not the only one who looses the boat now and then LOL!
