This was a very murky dive for Ricketts Point. We entered the water a few hours after high tide, and while the surface was calm we did experience some surge, which was probably contributing to the poor visibility. We saw lots of Zebra fish on this dive, but no Snapper at all. There seemed to be more large Sweep around this time, and they were as inquisitive as they usually are. The Zebras and Leatherjackets (mainly Horseshoes, Six-spined, Rough, and Yellow) still seem to be concentrated in one small area of the reef, and many were streaming in and out of the caves and ledges in this area. The Zebras were moving around a bit more and were grazing on the foliage, with quite a few seen hanging vertically in the water.
