Diving Isla Providencia, Columbia

We left Roatan for our epic voyage that will get us to San Francisco by July. A lot of miles to travel. Our first stop is Providencia(heaven) ,a beautiful island off the coast of Nicaragua. The island is governed by Columbia which is 400 miles to the south. Nicauragua feels the island and surrounding waters show be their territory. A case is currently in the world court.

This island was the hangout for the pirate Henry Morgan. He launched the attack on Portebello from here with 1200 men. The island is rich in the hanging of pirates and burning of Protestants.

  Our first dive was at Felipe's Place. This Jack followed us for the entire dive.He /she was very inquisitive.
