Saturday was an epic day of shore diving at Old Marineland. Over 20 divers showed up for clear water, no waves, and nudibranchs-a-plenty. I photographed 14 species in 2 dives. Here are the photos from my 2 dives:

Enjoy the photos!
On a separate note, I came face to face with a giant 20ft long siphonophore (same family as the portuguese man-of-war), I heard it had a nasty sting. They get up to 160 feet long!!!!! This one was at point dume, in 20ft of water, in heavy current, a couple weeks ago. I had originally thought it was a salp, but Dave Wrobel set me straight.
