Talk about crowded…..YEESH. The parking lot was %100 full. Luckily, a space opened up when Angelique arrived. Could you imagine waiting for a space in order to dive!

It was a beautiful night and the wind was calm. The waves were almost non existent so entry was a piece of cake. With the conditions looking great top side, we were looking forward to a great dive. However, conditions below were not that good. We kicked out to the end of the pier and dropped down to about 70 feet. This was odd because we usually drop to about 40-50 feet at the end of the pier. I guess since we were near the bathroom stairs things are a little different there as compared the middle steps. Visibility was 5-10 feet but the thing that really sucked was the fact that there were not too many critters out tonight.

We searched and searched and only came up with a few things to see. It’s amazing how some nights you can have an UNREAL dive and other nights are just BLAND.

Below are some highlights from the dive:

Here is a 2 second video of a Skate I took by accident….lol
