After a lively 13-hour drive from our home offices in New Jersey, we arrived in the early afternoon of Sunday, June 26th to Rimouski. Our first day of diving is scheduled for tomorrow June 27th and we spent the rest of the day meeting with the dive boat captain, Jean-Pierre Bouillion, chatting with local dive legend Dany St-Cyr and getting ourselves settled in our "new" home at the LaNavigateur Village in St. Luce with our splendid host Mark Doucet.
The seas looked fairly rough looking beyond the pier with many whitecaps. Our plan is to check the marine weather report at 3:30 am to see when we could dive. The weather is very tricky in this part of the St. Lawrence and the tides, currents and winds all conspire to determine when or if we can dive that day. If Jean Pierre does not phone us at 4:00 am then we are to meet him at the marina at 10 am.
