Welcome to our blog, describing our voyage aboard Bravo, a Kelly Peterson 46 sailboat with homeport in Seattle, Washington. We headed south in 2010, destined for Mexico and beyond. Cheers, Adam and Cindi

Some Terrific Diving around Viani Bay
With friends from s/y "Maunie" and s/y "Interlude", we made a couple of great dives today just outside Viani Bay. Went with the good folks at Dolphin Bay Dive Resort. First, the "Great White Wall", always shows up in magazines as one of the worlds top 10 dives. Truly spectacular, it lived up to the hype, as we dropped through a couple of tunnels to emerge at the top of the wall at about 95 feet, where a myriad of white and colored corals drop off into the depths. Other hard and soft corals everywhere, with great variety of fish. I think we'll have to dive this one again!!!
Second dive was shallower, on a reef out in the Somosomo Straits, known as the "Fish Factory". Also a terrific dive, with heaps of fish and a great variety of corals.
We'll continue diving here in the Somosomo Straits for the next several days.
