Underwater VORTEX Found at Roca Partida

Every once in a great while, something comes along that absolutely no one has ever seen, and that was recently the case at Roca Partida.

Divers on an early May trip noticed a thin line of bubbles extending from point to point on the east side of Roca Partida. As they got closer, they noticed a current, but it was circular! The bubbles and current were moving in a counterclockwise fashion, creating a horizontal vortex about 20 ft (6 m) high... Take a closer look below or in the trip video:

If you've ever seen a diver exhale a "smoke ring" underwater, you have the idea of a vortex. But this one stretched from one end of Roca Partida to the other. We saw it once, and not since.
