The recent rains will have taken care of them. Not sure if the fresh water kills them, sends them deep or on their way, but they vanish after a reasonable amount of rain, and it has rained a fair bit since last weekend.

We're headed down also on the 22nd, and just got my Safe Sea yesterday, just in case.

Well that's good to hear....Coming down on the 31st for the first time (honeymoon) and definitely don't want those critters to keep me outta the water.

Pica pica are the offspring of the thimble jellyfish. If exposed during one of these "blooms" you could be covered with several chicken pox like welts for up to 7 days. I've heard that a product "safesea" helps prevent the reaction.
