Deadman Bay ...

The opportunity was seized today to make another trip to the remarkable wreck that lies just south of the CFB Marina. Four of us (including a dive buddy met through the recent NAS course) spent just over 45 minutes delighting in the sheer strength and presence of the timbers of this old warship. Almost as impressive - and certainly equally delightful - were the hosts of fish around the wreck. Small schools of baby Bass were hanging over the open areas and several Catfish were hugging the muddy bottom or drifting through the wooden walls.

Visibility was very poor for Kingston, just 15-20'. The water is like a thin soup these days. Temperature - 64F (18C).
