Just Chilling

As you have probably noticed we have decided to start reworking the layout of the site.  We have already restructured the homepage to only display our posts and no external ones.  You can still view external posts in the Dive News section.  We will also be adding new photos and content under the resources tab that will include gear reviews and other useful information that our club uses before any dive.  While dogging through photos I found this one of a Sea Turtle on the YO-257 off of Hawaii.  I only did some minimal editing on this using Picasa and yes, it was shot on a Go Pro Hero 3+.

Happy Diving!

USCGC Duane Moray Eel and Turtle Encounter

  • USCGC Duane
  • USCGC Duane Smoke Stack
  • USCGC Duane Moray Prior to Video

On the final day of our June 2014 Key Largo trip we we able to dive the USCGC Duane under nearly ideal conditions (i.e. NO current and excellent visibility).  We encountered nearly all the creatures of this vessel: Goliath Grouper, Stingray, Moray Eel, Sea Turtle, and tons of smaller critters.  Here are the best of the videos that I took:

Wildlife of Key Largo

This video is a mix of the best wildlife footage that the DiveYeti club accumulated while diving in Key Largo. The footage was shot on the wrecks of the USS Spiegel Grove, USCGC Duane, and Molasses Reef. It is an attempt to show the various types of wildlife throughout Key Largo. There was some footage shot of the infamous Goliath Grouper however it did not turn out as well as we had hoped.

Happy diving from DiveYeti!
