After a wonderful day of boat diving with Ross, Merry and I headed to Marineland this morning for a dip in the pool with Evil Jeff Shaw. The Point looked a little too rough so we decided to enter from the cove. Once in the water our plans changed and we headed to the 120 Reef due to the red tide. If I stretched out my arm I couldn't see my hands.
When we hit the bottom I was happy to find 3-6 feet of murky vis. We headed south until hitting the sand, then made our way back into the next cove. We surfaced, checked our location and decided to swim under the kelp back to Cobble Beach. There was quite a bit of surge and near zero vis but we all arrived at our exit point together.
Along the way, we found a Mexichromis porterae, Cuthona divae including eggs, two Sunstars, blennies, a Zebra goby, Christmas Tree worms, hydroids and Vancouver phoronids everywhere and even a Garibaldi. I declined the photo op. I did manage to shoot a feather duster worm from the underside for the first time.
