I dove Redondo canyon last night as a twilight dive, dropping down at about 5:45pm. The entry and exit were super easy - maybe one foot surf, if that. Vis was about 10 foot – not bad, not great. I got a couple of shots that I thought I would share, plus I’ve included some pics from some previous Redondo canyon dives as well. The canyon is a favorite photo dive as you never know what you might see…

From last night, found this guy buried in the sand:

Also from last night, this octopus embarrassed at being photographed turned bright red…
