Hygeia – Saturday 8th February

Divers: Paul, Mick, Ben, Youri

Saturday was a beautiful day to be out at sea, it was dead flat and a perfect day for a deep wreck dive. Todays target: the Hygiea, a 300ft steel paddle steamer that lays at around 60 meters. I have been trying to dive the Hygiea for a long time but somehow it never happened. So I was really excited when we descended and the Hygiea did not disappoint, so much to look at. It will take a couple of dives to capture it all. We swam all the way to the bow and back. After a good look at the massive wheel it was time to ascend. We hit a nice thermocline at 27m which made our decompression time really comfortable.
