Posted by scottfiji on June 22, 2007 at 07:11:18:|
Vis was not great, but not bad either. water was warmer in the shallows. no strong currents. Staff of the magician was great as usual.
dive #1: bird rock, 100ft, 57deg, 1:06, 30ft vis
Saw a couple nudies deeper on the kelp, some shawls, T. fungina and island kelpfish shallower
dive #2: isthmus reef, 97ft, 59deg, 0:52, 30ft vis
Saw a bat ray and angel shark, a baitball and some schooling blacksmith. brought 2 cameras on this dive, lost one of them (the fuji) but luckily the boat staff saw it floating by the boat and had someone fetch it for me! I was so relieved to see it back on the boat. debbie found a nice Polycera tricolor on this dive.
dive #3: eagle reef, 74ft, 60deg, 0:54, 30ft vis
Didn't see a lot this dive, just some schooling blacksmith, a garibaldi, and a flatworm.
Enjoy the photos! - Scott
