What’s the Status of the Sargassum Invasion?
There was none on Palm Beach a couple of weeks ago when I was there.
We just got back from Aruba yesterday and for the 8 days we were there, we visited almost every beach on the island and none at all.
Hope you enjoyed your trip and your morning runs wildcat22. I expect a 10,000 word trip report by 5pm today!
Hey guys, I know it's difficult to predict but thinking of going to Aruba next month around mid-September. Any updates on the Sargassum there now or around that time? Or certain beaches/areas that are unaffected? Thanks in advance.
There is NO seaweed I am here now and have walked many of the beaches....all looking great!
We were there 16 days in July/August, noticed none at the 3 major resort beaches.
But from Arashi all around entire island to Sero Colorado where reefs aren’t able to block it, it was present in major quantities. Since those areas are front-on with the current most of the year. One place we thought we were stepping on sand with seaweed on top, but is was the opposite and we were sinking in. Had an unpleasant gaseous smell even with the breeze. When the current changes this fall I wouldn’t be surprised to see it collect on the resort sides.
It’s a nuisance and probably not the best for the ecology, but much less of an impact as negligent tourists
