Went out and dove Breakwater again, but this time with a friend. ;-)

Sea Nettles were said to be swarming the area but it wasn't as bad this weekend as earlier reports have stated. Still felt like trying to fly through a battery of flak with the many Nettles we saw out there.

Vis was about 20~25-ft

Much of the active life was macro sized but I was more interested in playing with a wide angle lens I recently picked up. It also allowed me to use the ikelite housing for the first time. I always used the Canon housing since there was never any reason to use the ikelite if I didn't have a lens or a strobe. I really like the results despite the slight vignetting.

Here are pics and video.
