Based on recent experience diving the barge, we regard the site largely as a potential sea lion extravaganza. However, the ocean continues to deliver up wonderful surprises. What a thrill to see numbers of large fried egg jellies drifting by or momentarily snagged on the red gorgonians.

But the best part of the dive yesterday came in a small package. You guessed it. The barge is bursting with nudis, and here are two species that we seldom see.


Acanthodoris rhodoceras

Tritonia festiva had just finished laying its eggs on a cone snail. That might be a first.
