Dive Trip - St. John - Tuan Phong - August 18, 2007© Photos by Mark Miller © Hi-Res Source
The crew consisted of my Boys - Ben, Paul, and Luke, along with their friends Alec Newman, Issac Vlahos and Issac's Father - Steve Vlahos. This was primarily a Dive Monitoring Trip for MGFB to 3 locations. The Casino Magic Barge in FH-1 was visited to examine the 2 APCs left on her Deck. They were not found. Then the Shrimp Boats St. John and the Tuan Phong in FH-13 were visited. Following that a nearby Oil Rig was visited. As you can see, numerous pictures were taken as well as obervations of these reefs that are nearly a year old. They are doing fairly well although there were few large game fish. We did wet a hook here and there in between dives with Ben boating the largest Red Snapper followed closely by Steve's. The weather was very cooperative so it made for a fun day out in the Sun. Total trip encompassed 70.4 miles and 11 hours.
