As usual, the water was VERY cold, about 39 degrees or so! The weather was great, just staring fall weather, but beautiful! We left the dive shop about 7:30 AM and arrived at the cave about 9:30. We had a bit of an audience when we got up there, with lots of people asking us questions like: "Is it dark in there, and is the water cold?".
We prepped our gear, and started the dive. The entry way was clear and the flow was not too bad. I was wearing a new dry suit, which I apparently cut the neck seal a little too much, and so I suffered a flooded suit. By the time we were about 30 mins. into the dive and back at the second air space, I was so cold that I had to call the dive! By the time we made it out of the cave, I was really chilled! The top of my head was so cold, I couldn't feel a thing! Completely numb! I was quite hypothermic and really struggled even getting my gear off. In fact, Richard had to help me remove my fins!
All in all, it was a beautiful dive, albeit cold! I had a great time, and about 2 1/2 hours later, by the time we made it back to Dive Addicts, I was actually almost warmed up! What we won't do for a little adventure!
