Just got back from Blue Lagoon where we had a blast. The air was cold (around 50 degrees) but the water was a nice 68 degrees. Lets just say that it was interesting getting out after we'd warmed up to the water temperature. Anyway, everyone pretty much did at least 1 dive (Brad had 2 dives). Even though Steve hadn't gone diving in 10 years, he did very well. Lindsay had some regulator problems on his first dive but fixed it up for his second dive. We camped overnight and left this morning.

Anyway, here are the pics...

A few more pics....

I also went there saturday for a couple of hours. Then came back to Houston 'cause i had another commitments for the evening.

Anyways, the place is very, very nice. Got to meet people from the club i hadn't met before. Here some more pics of the place for those who couldn't make it:






My favorite one: Steve staying warm with a real cuban. At least that's what he said:D





Camp site with a nice Tundra in front of it:D

I rented mine. It was $60 for the tank, BC, and regulator. They didn't rent masks or fins so I picked up some fairly cheap.

Can you snorkel or free dive there? How is the water so clear?
The water was somewhat clear. Visability was around 15-20 feet if I had to guess. It would have been clearer if we hadn't had some of the recent rain.

another trip will be planned in short order. With the baby due in mid July I have to get all of my fun trips out of the way for a while. Blue lagoon is a truly awesome place to go especially since it is so close for everyone. Less than 2.5 hours for Brad and I. And you cant beat 30 bucks for 2 days of diving and camping. Sunday when we left the water was much clearer. Looked like drinking water. How does the middle of next month look for everyone?Maybe the 19th (weekend after mothers day) the following weekend would be Memorial Day so that is a no-go due to the amount of people we would be there with. Just an idea if anyone is interested
