I was in Avalon for the week with the family and luckily I was able to break away from everyone to get a dive in with Scott and Penny.

We hit the water at around 1:30 looking for the ever elusive Giant Sea Bass. On one of Scott and Penny’s previous dives, they were fortunate enough to spot one. This time we were not so lucky.

We dropped down near the stairs and slowly worked our way in the direction of the Su-Jac. This was a very pleasant mellow dive that I enjoyed very much. We spotted a few Kelp Fish (my pictures did not turn out well), schooling Salema, Horn Shark, Juvi Garibaldi’s and towards the end of the dive as we were working our way to exit at the stairs, we swam around for a while in a huge bait ball.

Here are some highlights from the dive.
