First time on the Olympic, Wish it was like this all time.

Bottom vis 25 - 30 ft.
Max depth 95 Ft
Bottom temp 56, didn't feel the cold due to the bright light and cheery conditions.
Dive time 44 min, including a 3 min safety stop.

Arrived at high tide, flat seas no current, while waiting for some fishermen to depart the current picked up and was going pretty good by the time we descended. Blue water all the way to the bottom, lots of light. Found a large anchor snagged on the wreck with about a hundred feet of chain, who ever lost it deployed a marker buoy (Great Escape?). When we surfaced, the current was really ripping and the buoy was under 3 feet of water. we clocked the current at 1.8 mph. Oh yes, lots of fish and other colorful stuff, had my camera working overtime.

On the down side we anchored directly over the wreck, what a surprise, but had pay my dues to the sea gods and leave my anchor behind.
