On Sunday July 31, 2011 I went to Anacapa Island aboard the Peace. The boat left the harbor at 7Am and the ride across was a bit bumpy. but at a bit after 9AM we arrived at Rat Rock in the West End Preserve for the first dive.
The water temperature was 64°F and the visibility was about 35-40 feet. I headed to the West I was alone for the entire dive.
Here are some picture from that dive.
The wind was coming up a bit and i began to get bumpy so Captain Kevin headed East for Cathedral Rock in the East End Preserve. The water temperature was 64°F and the visibility was about 35-40 feet. I headed out away from where they told everyone to go and found some rock formations in 60-80 feet where I spent the dive alone.
Here are some pictures from Cathedral Rock.
For the third dive we headed back toward the West End and stopped and dove at Goldfish Bowl. Again the water temperature was 64°F and the visibility was about 35-40 feet. I headed West again, but this time one pair of divers ventured as far away as I did, so I did not get the entire dive alone.
Here are some pictures from Goldfish Bowl.
I found another Limaria hemphilli (Swimming File Shell, Hemphill Fileclam) and a Cucumaria salma for them.
It was a great trip with nice diving, good food, and a great crew. I was glad I went.
