The four of us had all up two free dives and 2 photography scuba dives.
For the first free dive we only had 3 metres vis which dropped to 2 inches before the end of that one as the tide was coming in with open ocean saltwater, the freshwater was too much for the tide and over the top came the freshwater from the massive rains that night.
The fresh water moved out on top as the main tide change came in underneath and there the vis became less then 10 inches.
The other free dive and scuba were in 8 to 5 metres vis, the rains certainly did a number on the salinity and vis over all, many corals and anems were suffering and as with the other times we will loose tons of life to these once unusual rains.
