OK, that may not be entirely accurate, but things start picking up for me right then. Over the years, working for myself or others, I've always thought the dive business starts to pick up the first week after the 13th or so of June. The last couple of days I've been getting more calls from people who are coming over "next week" than during much of the spring.
I'm posting this primarily as a reminder to let people know, if you are coming over here soon and expecting to do activities that have a limited number of seats available, you might want to set things up soon. I can only seat 6 on my boat and I have partial bookings every day for the rest of the month, I had to turn away a group of 6 yesterday... if they'd called early enough they could've had the whole boat, my guess is they're going to have to join in on a larger boat to find 6 seats on this short of notice. I still have plenty of spots on most days, but can't handle the big groups when I've already got even one seat booked.
Hopefully it'll be a busy summer for everyone, it's been kind of a slow spring for a lot of businesses here.
This is a shot of a juvenile Blackside Hawkfish (Paracirrhites forsteri). They look dramatically different from the adults, which are pictured elsewhere in the blog (click on the word hawkfish below and you will find a few on the page that pops up).
