Dropped down on top of the reef and swam west. We were immediately greeted by a moving wall of bait fish, very dense and estimated at about 30 feet long. Later we were greeted by a carpet of Black Perch which moved under us. Evidently they feared us less than the sea lion patrolling the edge of the kelp. Very large sheep’s head crabs. Nice short dive with 3-4 foot surge and poor visibility in the shallows.
