|Dive Report: San Miguel Island on the Peace|
Posted by Chris on June 10, 2010 at 23:09:27:|
Last Sunday June 6, 2010 I went to San Miguel Island aboard the Peace. I boarded on Saturday evening, set up my gear and went to sleep. Although the weather prediction was dire, the midnight departure and crossing was so calm I did not even wake.
Our next dive was at Wyckoff Ledge, a target rich environment for a photographer. There were many small fich including juvenile rockfish, interesting invertebrates, many nudibranchs, and a some interesting pelagic critters. Again the visibility was 30 feet and the temperature varied from 50°F at the surface to 48°F at 100 feet.
Our third dive was at Rain Barrel. Every rock was covered with nudibranchs.
Our last dive was at The Bluffs. I dropped and found several rocks covered with large Red Abalone (Haliotis rufescens). I had a macro lens, so I got a shot of one of the juveniles among the giants.
I spent most of the dive here taking pictures of the many interesting pelagic creatures drifting about.
It was another great trip aboard the Peace.
