Merry and I planned an early morning dive at Redondo Canyon to look for Tritonia diomedea nudibranchs that have been reported lately. We dropped into 86 feet and headed down to 120. We found their food source, sea pens but no nudis in sight. As we headed back uphill Merry spotted two California sea slugs, Pleurobranchaea californica munching away. The visibility hear wasn't great but I managed one shot without too much backscatter.
A few minutes later Merry found Spotted Triopha
Triopha maculata. We then spotted a Monterey dorid, Archidoris montereyensis at the same time. At least I found one thing with my own eyes.
Visibility in the shallows was good, as was the canyon with fifteen feet in 53F water.
