Diving on the Olympic was great.

Vis was between 100 and 150 feet, and the water was about 82 at depth. No current.

There were naked mermaids handing out the rare Alaska Packers Storm Covers at the bow of the wreck.

Chilled cases of dark beer were being distributed to all divers at the stern, and the best part was there were not three drift nets all over the place.

NOAA and the National Park Service have moored a big barge over the site and are offering divers free air and nitrox fills. There are setting up fresh water rinse tanks for everything we find and are even offering to help bring up the larger pieces with thier crane.

PADI and their Respect the Wreck campaign is also reimbursing all divers for their boat fees, just mail a cover letter and receipt for the boat fees to PADI Project Aware.


PHIL, WE HAD FUN !

Kevin
