For anyone who was mulling over whether to dive Thanksgiving weekend, hope this gives you the motivation to do it. With the morning high-high tide vis is kicking ass! Sorry I didn't get any photos, but hopefully next time I'll have the camera. :)

To everyone else who's been posting their dive reports, thanks! I've been checking here for a long time, but just never got around to posting my own dives...hopefully I can make it a habit from now on.

happy turkey day all,
Adam

Comments: Film crew on site today, but they didn't give me any trouble. Went in the usual left side of the cove, high-high tide made for an easy swim out and byoo-ti-ful vis! Descended off the rocks at the west point, headed south into deeper water. Never been here with this kind of vis, so enjoyed the scenery, checked out the vents, and spied a few bugs.

Gas mix:air
Comments: Descended on the same spot, but this time headed east around the point into Abalone cove, then back out. Calm, calm, calm. Found a nice fishing pole on the bottom at about 30 ft. Don't really fish, but maybe I can now.

Date: 11/21/06
Dive Location: White Point
Buddy(ies): solo
Time: 2:06 PM
Bottom Time: 1 hr, 14 min
Max Depth: 20 fsw
Vis: 10-15 ft
Wave height: 1-2 ft
Temp at depth: 61
Tide information: almost low-low
Gas mix:air
Comments: Entered off the rocks on the right side of the cove this time. The kelp is thick! Vis degraded with the low tide, but still not bad at all. Surgy over the reefs, but lots of schools of halfmoons, surfperch, and topsmelt. Calicos aren't shy here at all! Hung out in a few underwater "rooms" beneath the kelp canopy, with sunlight filtering down thru the portholes above. Arrgh no camera!
