The Story: A single sardine is small, but a school of sardines is tremendous - especially when the water is clear and blue. To find the right ocean conditions, we surveyed several dive shops, and asked if they could provide early morning diving. In the afternoon, diving in a sea of sardine poop which can lower the visibility a lot. This was our best shot during 3 dives at the same site.
